Important - 120 disabled people receive full 3 year benefit sanction

Church Action on Poverty have confirmed that year ending October 2013 an astonishing 120 people living with disabilities received the full THREE year benefit sanction forcing disabled people and their families into dire poverty.

It is not known the severity of the disabilities of those sanctioned but the FOI has confirmed that disabled people are NOT exempt from having their benefits slashed .This is completely wrong.
