Our response to 'Supporting those who need it most?' report from Disability Benefits Consortium

Today the Disability Benefits Consortium launched their latest report on Personal Independence Payment (PIP): 'Supporting those who need it most?'.

Clare Laxton, Assistant Director of Policy and Influencing at CLIC Sargent, said: “Sadly, we are not surprised by the findings of this report. Young people that we support tell us regularly that applying for PIP is a difficult and stressful experience when they already have enough to deal with. This is completely unacceptable and we support the report’s call to simplify the application process for PIP so that young cancer patients get the right support they need.”
