​​Dear Friends,

Due to a variety of exceptionally urgent issues, please find a few extra dates for this month and some other important information.

The criteria for PIP claimants with mental health conditions shamefully is under further attack. The government seem to be going back and forth with changes. Please read more about this HERE
 
According to UNITE half million people have had their benefit suddenly stopped and sanctioned in the past 12 months.
FEEL is supporting
UNITE, DPAC and other organisation that are leading the National Day of Action Against Sanctions on Thursday 30 March. Find a variety of times and locations in London and nationwide for this day of action HERE

For those unable attending the march please share the news and links widely and do consider joining THUNDERCLAP; the positive effect on raising general public awareness on this matters is very important.
