Stroud Against the Cuts is beginning to campaign on cuts to benefits for people living with disabilities, and the flaws of Work Capability Assessments.
If you are interested in helping inform and develop this campaign, please email
or attend one of our meetings (these happen on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month, at The Exchange, Brick Row, Stroud, GL5 1LE, from 7-9pm).
