Firstly, soooooo sorry we had a Facebook hitch. Just too many health related balls in the air
We now have a Facebook page where you can share links you see joining the #BeyondBarriers debates, talk about ESA and Work Programme reform, and let people know what YOU think. Make your voice heard. Can you all be part of the team for a while and link to the site, ask for likes and share it around? Thank you
There are links all around the web discussing the Beyond the Barriers report and giving their first impressions. We're overwhelmed by the positivity and support from think-tanks to blogs, from Conservative MPs to Labour peers. From campaigners, still tweeting for all they are worth, hoping the public will hear and join them to charities.
Here are some new ones :
Catherine Hale, author of the Work Programme section of the report discusses it at Left Foot Forward
I start a debate at Progress
Richard Excell at Touchstone Blog welcomes the report :
False Economy share our press release
Claudia Wood at Demos writes an enormously thorough and supportive article
Luke Akehurst at Labour List shares his own experiences of disability and makes Beyond the Barriers come alive
I'm sure I've missed very very many, so if you could PLEASE list them in the comments thread the team would be so grateful.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. IT'S QUITE PHENOMENAL WHAT WE'RE ACHIEVING AND I KNOW WHAT IT IS COSTING YOU ALL.
