  • ‘Fit for work’ tests have normalised the suffering of sick and disabled people – Dr. Frances Ryan
    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 Share this Twitter Facebook Like this Like Loading Related benefit deaths Department of Work and Pensions fit for work work capability assessment Post navigation Previous Post Celebrating the hidden history of disabled people s fight for civil rights Next Post Cutting disabled people s benefits won t help anyone return to work One thought on Fit for work tests have normalised the suffering of sick and disabled people Mark Catlin says January 3 2016 at 7 39 am Reblogged this on markcatlin3695 s Blog 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

  • Celebrating the hidden history of disabled people’s fight for civil rights – Dr. Frances Ryan
    citizens with access to the workplace employers were required to make reasonable adjustments to work and premises and through later amendments to education and transport For disabled people who culturally are routinely perceived as helpless or passive it feels particularly important to recognise that anything we gained we fought for As the bright red tapestry hanging at the exhibition reads Nothing about us without us Looking through the artwork and the collected archives the sense of disabled people actively battling for our rights is unavoidable from campaign T shirts with the slogan Piss on Pity scrawled in pink writing to images of crowds of disabled people marching through the streets of Manchester or outside Whitehall Perhaps nothing is 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 Share this Twitter Facebook Like this Like Loading Related disability disability discrimination act people s history museum Scope Post navigation Previous Post A disabled woman s struggle is any woman s struggle Next Post Fit for work tests have normalised the suffering of sick and disabled people 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
