The Disability Benefits Consortium (DBC) is a national coalition of over 80 different charities and other organisations committed to working towards a fair benefits system for disabled people, people with long-term conditions and their carers.
This survey will ask you about Employment and Support Allowance (ESA), Personal Independence Payment (PIP) Attendance Allowance (AA) and Universal Credit (UC). However, you will only be asked about the benefits you’ve applied for.
Your responses will remain anonymous, unless you offer to be contacted further to support our campaigning work. Your anonymous responses will not be shared and will only be used by the Disability Benefits Consortium and its members to campaign for improvements to the benefits system.
The more responses they get, the more effective they can be in challenging government. So please spread the word and encourage clients to complete the survey – it takes between 10 and 30 minutes. Go to survey
Researchers from the Southampton University, together with the National Council for Palliative Care, are conducting a survey of how volunteers provide support for family caregivers at home. The information from the survey will be used to build a picture of the kind of support that volunteers provide nationally. To take part in the survey or find more information please see here.
The survey is the first of its kind for the neurological community. It aims to collect vital information about the experiences of care received by people affected by neurological conditions and help us to understand how much progress has been made in improving neurological services.
The survey is open until Monday 15 September 2014 and we welcome responses from anyone with a neurological condition living in England.
We will be using the survey findings to feed into a report later this year. The report will set out a comprehensive picture of what is happening in relation to neurological services and make recommendations about how care can be improved.
This is without doubt a timely and exciting opportunity for the neurological community.
We need your feedback to be able to make the strongest case to decision makers about how services need to change. We really value your support and look forward to sharing our findings with you over the coming months.
