There are big changes planned to the disability benefit Disability Living Allowance (DLA), with a planned change to become a new disability benefit called Personal Independence Payment (PIP).
Richmond AID have been very involved in responding to consultations, going to meetings, and sharing our thoughts and opinions on the proposed new benefit. You can find one of those responses below. There are more responses about the new PIP benefit on our website, under ‘Campaigns’. This information is very technical. We will produce clearer information as we get the full details, and do call our Advice Service (020 8831 6070) if you would like to discuss this.
