RNIB opposes government’s Back to Work Plan
Published 28 November 2023.
The Chancellor and the Work and Pensions Secretary have recently announced several new welfare and employment policies under a new ‘Back to Work Plan’ and as part of the Autumn Statement which RNIB oppose.
The proposals include tougher rules around the requirements to look for work, which will apply to some out of work benefits, and some future changes to assessments have caused anxiety amongst some blind and partially sighted people.
RNIB have created a useful FAQ about the government’s Back to Work Plan and reforms to Work Capability Assessments – RNIB.
