#disabilityincompetent on Twitter.
The DWP are sending out masses of tweets claiming to give examples of outstanding disability confidence. They use the hashtag #disabilityconfidence. Our experiences recently show us that far from being disability confident, the DWP are disability incompetent. They are making it impossible for deaf people to gain, maintain and succeed in employment.
“Job redesign” is the latest offering. Supposedly providing maximum independence. Not being enabled to do the job of your choice doesn’t sound much like independence to us.
We are going to start using the hashtag #disabilityincompetent to highlight the issues. If you have examples of disability incompetency please tweet using the hashtag. You can include us in the tweet, so we can see it @emilysmith2007 and also use our hashtag #stopchanges2atw.
….Please remember to include @DWPgovuk too!
