The Association has been working on the Government?s major discussion paper?outlining their ideas for getting disabled and people with long-term conditions into work. People living with MND and those affected by it have been surveyed for their views on the proposals. 144 people responded to the MND Association?s survey.
Alongside this there have been two engagement events organised by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and the Disability Benefits Consortium (DBC) of which the Association is a member. One was for the policy staff at the Association and Mark and I attended on behalf of people with lived experience. We were able to discuss with civil servants directly and discuss and challenge their thinking.
The Association will be submitting a response by 17th February. This will be on the main Association?s website.
