Weekly Disability News Roundup

This weeks news roundup from the tireless John Pring. The first story is particularly good ;)

For links to the full stories, please visit Disability News Service


  1. A disabled people’s organisation has secured £300,000 of National Lottery funding to support disabled young people into volunteer placements.
    That’s wonderful and appreciated if they get properly paid for the work and they are happy to do it as opposed to being forced but what about the young people who are too sick and disabled to benefit from the above?

  2. I notice Miller again repeated the untrue claim that DLA overspend is £600m a year.

    It remains just £220m, incorporating both fraud and error(mostly error).
