A government green paper has revealed proposals to stop paying and hand the cash over to social services instead.
Under the plan, current claimants would have their disability benefits converted to a â€˜personal budgetâ€™ administered by local authorities and used to pay for services â€“ not to spend as they wish.
Once the green paper consultation period ends, if an almighty row has not been raised, it is likely that both major political parties will see the lack of outrage as a green light to end both Disability Living Allowance and Attendance Allowance.
You are strongly urged to sign the petition to maintain DLA and AA on the No 10 website, posted on 7 September by Peter Hand of Mencap. The deadline for signing the petition is 07 December 2009.
If these benefits are axed, it is likely that many thousands of disabled people, who rely on these benefits, will be plunged into severe poverty.
