Benefits and Disabilities
Brighton Benefits Campaign is a group of claimants and workers, who campaign to bring together those in and out of work in order to fight against all government 'reforms' intended to cut and privatise welfare.
Still Human UK is a charity which offers information, support and advice to disabled people in the UK, regardless of their disability. Still Human UK evolved as a result of many people contacting our founder regarding their various, often dire and distressing situations and having nowhere else to turn. Within the last 3 months we have thankfully managed to help 90 clients to successful completion of their cases, yet sadly, we have hundreds more waiting with many now needing legal intervention.
