Making Welfare Reform Work for People with a Neurological Condition

On 24 November, we also hosted a parliamentary reception in collaboration with a group of our member organisations to draw attention to how the forthcoming welfare reforms could affect people with a neurological condition. A packed room heard inspiring presentations from Lord Walton, Dr Diane Playford, summarizing research on supporting people with MS who want to stay in work and Sarah Joiner, talking about her experiences of working with MS. The Alliance briefing note sent to all MPs is attached.
