Blind people to lose millions

The Government’s plans to replace Disability Living Allowance (DLA) with Personal Independence Payment (PIP) will remove tens of millions of pounds from blind and partially sighted people.

The criteria for the new benefit fail to recognise that sight loss is a serious disability and that you face extensive extra costs if you can’t see.

Act now to challenge this benefits shake-up that will hit blind and partially sighted people particularly hard.

RNIB’s website carries useful information about the government benefits shake-up and what you need to do to lobby against it by writing to your MPs.  To find out more visit the link below.
