Ministers set to force work-related activity for ESA SG

Ministers set to force work-related activity on everyone in ESA support group

The Department for Work and Pensions is considering forcing all sick and disabled people on out-of-work disability benefits to take part in “mandatory” activity, its new green paper has revealed.

The suggestion of compulsory activity is revealed in a single line of the 92-page work, health and disability green paper, published this week.

Such a change would mean that all people on out-of-work disability benefits – even those who are terminally-ill or have the very highest support needs – would have to stay in regular touch with their local jobcentre or risk having their benefits sanctioned.

The measure would affect those in the support group of employment and support allowance (ESA) – and the equivalent group in the new universal credit – a group which is currently not expected to carry out any work-related activity at all.

The green paper, Improving Lives, says ministers “could consider implementing a ‘keep-in-touch’ discussion with work coaches” for people in the support group, which “could provide an opportunity for work coaches to offer appropriate support tailored to the individual’s current circumstances” and “could be explored as a voluntary or mandatory requirement”.

It comes only a month after the new work and pensions secretary, Damian Green, secured widespread praise for announcing an end to repeat assessments for those on ESA with “the most severe, lifetime conditions”.

This is the Tory way. It wasn't meant to sound as if the Tories were saving grace with their words.

What they meant to say was 'We will put an end to repeat assessments for those on ESA with “the most severe, lifetime conditions” and get all the scrounging bar stards in work. No matter how lame they are'. WORK MAKES YOU FREE. IT IS GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH.

Good afternoon everyone
So much for "we will stop the chronically sick being constantly reassessed"
This really does prove politicians lie through their teeth and cannot be trusted
Just when I thought there may be a glimmer of hope of compassion being shown towards the disabled
Kind regards Stephen
