Blind people’s benefits at risk – RNIB Campaign

Blind people with Guide dogs at Sight Village BirminghamBlind people to lose millions in Government’s benefits shake-up

The Government’s plans to replace Disability Living Allowance (DLA) with Personal Independence Payment (PIP) will remove tens of millions of pounds from blind and partially sighted people.

The criteria for the new benefit fail to recognise that sight loss is a serious disability and that you face extensive extra costs if you can’t see.

Please visit the RNIB Campaign sight here to read more and do something to help protect our 4,000 severely blind people in the UK from this latest savage LibdemTory assault. RNIB
