Access to Work article – Limping Chicken.
This morning I read Ian Noon’s article on Limping Chicken about his problems with AtW. Read it here. In it he describes his situation, saying:
I just want to do my job. I am tired of having to fight endless battles with faceless bureaucrats.
He also highlights another issue, which we are concerned about; that is peoples ability to complain. People often don’t feel confident enough, or are scared that what little support they are receiving will get taken away.
There is a brilliant resource available to help you complain about Access to Work: www.deafatw.com. It has sample letters to help you and also explains clearly what you need to do.
A moment ago, I spotted the following tweet from @DWPgovuk:
