Beat the Work Capability Assessment!

As people all round Britain protested at ATOS assessment centres on 19th February, Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty has published a new revised and expanded version of our article on how to deal with the Work Capability Assessment.  If you or a friend is facing an assessment for Employment and Support Allowance, Disability Living Allowance or Personal Independence Payment, then this is essential reading.

Don't face ATOS alone!  Get support in filling in the forms, prepare, and if you have to go to a test be accompanied.
