Have you experienced any problems receiving welfare / benefits because of the pandemic?

Has your Employment Support Allowance (ESA) been stopped? Did you miss the year-long limit for assessment because of the pandemic?

Were you told your assessment needs to be face to face? Were you told to have an assessment over the phone which isn’t accessible for you?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, the Scope Stories team want to hear from you.

The next phase of Scope’s We Won’t Be Forgotten campaign is focusing on protecting disabled people’s livelihoods. This is your chance to help us campaign on the impact of coronavirus on disabled people’s lives.

If you’d like to get involved and help Scope campaign on this issue, please contact the Stories Team by emailing Molly at [email protected]

We’d like to hear from you before 1st April.
