    shouting Lazy cow The stress led Adams to go on sick leave and start twice weekly counselling A few months later her manager told her she needed to learn to ignore the abuse Instead she went for legal advice What Adams didn t know was that in July 2013 just as her workplace abuse began the coalition government had brought in fees to have a claim heard at an employment tribunal the first time fees have been charged since the tribunal system was established in 1964 The solicitor told me I had a clear case but because of the new fees I d need to pay for it myself I couldn t afford that and my therapy Adams says I knew I had no comeback In Wednesday s Guardian I reported on the new research highlighting what happens when a government starts charging for justice Read the full piece here Share this Twitter Facebook Like this Like Loading Related disability Disabled People Against Cuts Public Interest Research Unit tribunal fees Post navigation Previous Post The new fit for work tests are not fit for purpose and at a rising cost Next Post News Hardworking Britain Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in Email required Address never made public Name required Website You are commenting using your WordPress com account Log Out Change You are commenting using your Twitter account Log Out Change You are commenting using your Facebook account Log Out Change You are commenting using your Google account Log Out Change Cancel Connecting to s Notify me of new comments via email About Frances Frances Ryan is a freelance journalist She writes The Guardian s austerity column Hardworking Britain She appears on television and radio

  • Stop telling us domestic violence is inevitable – Dr. Frances Ryan
    a staggering 31 in 18 months It feels strange on impulse to see this rise described by the report as a sign of improvement Importantly an increase in reports does not necessarily mean an increase in the crime and it s clear progress that more victims are feeling able to come forward but it s difficult to say anyone in a position of power should currently feel particularly proud whether that s the police failing to help victims when they risk their safety to make a report or the government cutting refuge services for them to flee to Read this week s Guardian column in full here Share this Twitter Facebook Like this Like Loading Related counting dead women police inspectorate refuge Women s Aid Post navigation Previous Post Cutting disabled people s benefits won t help anyone return to work Next Post The new fit for work tests are not fit for purpose and at a rising cost One thought on Stop telling us domestic violence is inevitable 61chrissterry says December 16 2015 at 5 57 pm Reblogged this on 61chrissterry Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in Email required Address never made public Name required Website You are commenting using your WordPress com account Log Out Change You are commenting using your Twitter account Log Out Change You are commenting using your Facebook account Log Out Change You are commenting using your Google account Log Out Change Cancel Connecting to s Notify me of new comments via email About Frances Frances Ryan is a freelance journalist She writes The Guardian s austerity column Hardworking Britain She appears on television and radio shows from BBC s Sunday Politics to Radio 4 s Woman s

    more striking than the photographs of the direct action DDA activists undertook black and white images of disabled people handcuffed to buses hanging their bodies proudly visibly affected by various disabilities in the road This was a matter of not only political but personal empowerment Read the full coverage in The Guardian here A disabled woman s struggle is any woman s struggle November 1 2015 November 1 2015 francesryan18 Leave a comment The most pressing issues faced by disabled women are the ones faced by most women except that when you re disabled it adds another layer of discrimination says Eleanor Lisney co founder of the disabled women s network Sisters of Frida Lisney helped organise what was the first ever session on disabled feminism at last weekend s Feminism in London conference It may seem trivial but to Lisney 56 it is a small significant victory in a larger battle for disabled women s recognition As one of the speakers on a panel where each woman has a disability and looking out at a room of largely disabled women I found it hard to ignore how oddly unusual the experience was This is important because feminists can t continue to ignore disabled women whether that s our contributions or barriers in society Lisney says Too often we don t feel included This exclusion feels like it s not only a matter of failing to listen to disabled women s voices but about whether what we say will even be thought to count as feminism Concerns that are currently at the forefront of disabled activism whether that s carers allowance or social care cuts are too often seen as if they have little relevance to women s equality but are actually key feminist concerns control over our bodies genuine choice and socio economic independence For The Guardian I wrote about my weekend at Feminism in London and why a disabled woman s struggle is any woman s struggle Evicting a wheelchair user to make way for luxury flats this is social housing 2015 September 16 2015 francesryan18 Leave a comment The story of Mostafa Aliverdipour a 50 year old wheelchair user raising his family on an estate in north London could tell politicians plenty about what has become of the principle of social housing in our capital Looking out on rows of boarded up walls and metal grilles Aliverdipour and his four children two grown up sons and two young daughters are living out of the shell of what once was Sweets Way a leafy suburban estate of 142 properties that provided homes for military families and later social tenants on the edge of north London for the past 40 plus years Since February 141 families have been evicted from the estate each one shipped out to temporary accommodation of poorer quality and higher rent often out of the borough Aliverdipour who damaged his spine while working in an old people s home three years ago and his children

  • Benefits – Dr. Frances Ryan
    declared fit for work and had their sickness benefits removed It has now been more than 18 months since the mainstream media including this paper reported the death of Mark Wood Despite struggling with multiple mental health problems the 44 year old was found fit for work in 2013 Wood s doctor described him as extremely unwell and absolutely unfit for any work whatsoever Four months later he was found dead in his home weighing 5st 8lb Any social security system requires a process that can accurately and humanely determine who needs out of work sickness benefits and who is physically and mentally fit to be on jobseeker s allowance looking for work This can t be a test based on suspicion but one that values the opinion of the disabled person and their own doctor rather than a stranger hired by an outsourced private company Instead of a crude box ticking judgment of impairment any assessment needs to appreciate how someone s health actually affects their ability to get and keep a job What exactly is the DWP waiting for In a week where more criticism came out in relation to their impact on mental health my Guardian column looked at the scandal of fit for work tests Death has become a part of Britain s benefits system August 28 2015 August 28 2015 francesryan18 Leave a comment Go to your local benefits office and desperation can be boiled down to a six point plan mounted on pink laminated card The Department for Work and Pensions DWP has assembled written guidance on suicide for its frontline staff a euphemism for workers hired to call people and break it to them that they ve been rejected for benefits One section of the guidance that is to be reported to managers to alert them of a suicidal intention instructs jobcentre staff to find out what the person plans when it is planned for and whether the customer has the means to hand I don t know at what point social security and a risk of suicide became inevitable partners Or when government supporting people as the DWP described the guidance this week began to mean not helping people build their lives but checking that they do not want to die Death has become a part of Britain s benefits system That is not hyperbole but the reality that the stress caused by austerity has led us to Shredding the safety net a mix of sanctions defective fit for work tests and outright cuts to multiple services has meant that benefit claimants are dying through suicide starvation and even being crushed by a refuse lorry when a 17 week benefit sanction forced a man to scavenge in a bin for food For The Guardian I wrote about the newly released benefit mortality statistics Read the full column here The five most dangerous myths about sickness and disability benefits August 25 2015 francesryan18 Leave a comment In a major speech Iain Duncan Smith
