Join the campaign against disability benefit cuts!

Disabled people, those with long-term conditions and their families are being hit hard by cuts to the benefits and services they need to live their lives. The Hardest Hit campaign, organised jointly by the Disability Benefits Consortium and the UK Disabled People’s Council, brings together individuals and organisations to send a clear message to the Government: stop these cuts.

On Saturday 22 October 2011 disabled people, their families and friends took to the streets in cities across the UK, protesting against Government cuts to disability benefits and services. This took place one year on from the Comprehensive Spending Review that revealed the Government's intention to slash public spending.

Twelve major events took place in cities across the UK: Belfast, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Leeds, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Norwich and Nottingham.
