Do you suffer from the £500 cap
This morning on the Andrew Marr show it was great to hear Jeremy Corbyn talking about how a Labour Government would help people with disabilities.
He said that with a Labour Government in power £2billion would immediately be invested into the Department of Work and Pension to deal with the awful effects of the £500 cap and also the way in which people with disabilities have been treated. Jeremy Corbyn also went on to say that half of the families that had a person with a disability in them live in poverty there would be a lot more to do. We agree fully with his statement saying that
I am appalled at the level of poverty amongst people, particularly people with disabilities.
