MS Society – Help us win a High Court hearing

 

My independence #TooMuchToLose

We have some exciting news. Our campaign to end discrimination against people on legacy benefits is being heard in the High Court today – and you can help!

The High Court is going to decide whether the UK Government was acting lawfully when they decided not to give nearly two million people on legacy benefits, including Employment and Support Allowance and Jobseeker’s Allowance, the increase of £20 per week that those on Universal Credit received at the start of the pandemic.

You can Tweet your support for the uplift to be given to disabled people on benefits using the button below. Sharing your support will mean that the UK Government is less likely to appeal the decision.

If you don’t use Twitter, you can help spread the news by sharing the Facebook post at the top of our page or forwarding this email to your friends who do use Twitter.

We will let you know when the decision of this court case is announced. While we hope the High Court will recognise the failings of the UK Government, the fight to end this discrimination may not be over.

Thanks for everything you do,

Angharad
