DWP: Employment Support Allowance must change. Adopt our amendments.

This petition had 7,811 supporters

The current system is not working for the most sick and vulnerable in our society. We want:
* A 28-day notice period for benefit reductions to reduce acute debt issues, financial instability and associated health breakdown.
* The reassessment of entitlement to sickness and disability benefits should be set for a period relating to a successful appeal, not the date or the original decision. This will stop the roller-coaster of zero-point decisions and appeals we see in any given year.
* Greater flexibility for those attending medical assessments or assessments for ESA claimants placed in work-related activity group so those with mental health issues or those with more severe mobility restrictions can take part in a manner sympathetic to their condition, thus reducing issues of inapproporiate sanctions.
