DLA and AA safe for one parliament

Thanks to the enormous outcry led by various charities including FMA UK, disability living allowance and attendance allowance are safe – for the course of one parliament. You may remember our article about the threat to these benefit.

Following the publication of the National Care Service white paper in March the government now say

We have long said that we would protect everyone currently getting DLA and AA in cash terms in any reform of the social care system. We continue to believe that this is essential.


This White Paper goes further and rules out any changes to DLA or AA in the next Parliament to fund the second stage of reform.

While this is positive news, we do not know what the future will bring and it will very much depend on who forms the next government and their policies. No matter who takes power you can be sure that any attempt to take away or reduce these will face fierce opposition

You can download a copy of the white paper from this link.
