Equality Impact Assessment is inaccessible! 

The Equality Impact Assessment which was sent out by the DWP on the 8th May (though published four days prior to this) has not been produced in an accessible version for BSL users. It details the changes to the scheme and how this is expected to effect individuals. These changes will see Deaf BSL users having their support capped, while also affecting others who happen to have high cost support needs, yet the information has not been made available to those it will effect the most. 

BSL users are consistently the last group to receive any information. Information should not be sent out until all accessible versions are available, this includes BSL. This example sums up many peoples experience of Access to Work.
