Croydon and Bromley Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC) is a group campaigning for the human rights of disabled people in the context of austerity and cuts to services and benefits.
DPAC is holding a benefit justice meeting in Croydon from 7pm on May 30 at Acts Ministries, Acts House, 30 Union Road, Croydon, CR0 2XU. It’s an opportunity for people affected by the cuts to get some support, and for everyone to join our campaign against the cuts.
“The Bedroom Tax and the benefits cap, alongside other sweeping changes to the benefits system and the reduction in vital services supporting disabled people and parents, is hitting the poor hard – both those in and out of work,” DPAC’s spokeswoman said.
“The benefits cap on top of the Bedroom Tax will impoverish and stigmatise people who can’t move home, while driving out others to unfamiliar parts of the country, uprooting their lives and their support networks, and leaving London to the better off.”
