Teresa Pearce MP supports the Stop Changes to Access to Work campaign
We are very pleased to have the support of Teresa Pearce MP. Teresa tabled the recent parliamentary questions on Access to Work, and has been working tirelessly to get the issue debated in parliament.
We approached Teresa as she had already been supporting a member of her constituency about AtW.
As a member of the Work and Pensions Select Committee, Teresa is well placed to raise concerns over the current guidance and changes to practice and is able to ensure that our views are heard.
Teresa fully understands the importance of Access to Work and the devastating affect the reduction of this scheme are having on the people it previously fully supported.
The aim of our campaign is to stop the unnecessary changes to AtW that are having such a detrimental affect on Deaf, DeafBlind and deafened peoples’ ability to work, their employability, and health. We continue to ask AtW, the DWP and this government to really talk with Deaf AtW users in order to keep the progress in Deaf peoples’ employment that AtW has helped achieve over the last 20 years.
We continue to work with other groups wherever possible.
Thank you for your continued support.
