Parliamentary Constituency Boundaries. The Boundary Commission for England published their latest proposals for England.Responses to the consultation are needed by 2nd Augusr 2021. Click here for further details and access to the consulation:

A consultation on a new Government Green Paper. The Department of Work and Pensions has published a new Green Paper: Shaping Future Support: The Health and Disability Green Paper. This Green Paper explores how the benifits system can better meet the needs of disabled people and those with health conditions. Ot was informed by ectensive engagement with disabled people, people with health conditions and their representatives, to hear about people's ecperiences of DWP services and priorities for future change. The consultation closes on 11th October 2021. The consultation includes changes which could:

  • Enable independent living and testing the role of advocacy so people who need extra help to navigate the benefits system get the right level of support and information first time. 
  • Review how assessments are carried out including exploring the potential for longer-term use of telephone and video assessments and looking at how reassessments work including testing a new Severe Disability Group (SDG) for people with severe and life-long conditions that will not improve. This could see those who meet the criteria experiencing a more simplified application process, without the need for an assessment to receive financial support 
  • Improve support for disabled people to help them start, stay and succeed in work through the Work and Health Programme, Access to Work and on personalising employment support, recognising that one size does not fit all.
