Free of political persuasion and not tied to any particular organisation or representative body, New Approach aims to devise a much better alternative to the Work Capability Assessment. We’re a committed group of four who will work in close liaison with anyone who cares enough to listen and help us achieve our goal. Our skills range from helping hundreds of damaged individuals negotiate the WCA maze from the front-line of the advice sector to forcing a main debate in Parliament. We’ve done much to highlight the injustice inflicted upon hundreds of thousands of disabled people, carers and physically & mentally unwell people of all ages and now intend to bring about real change.
We tell you why the WCA should be abolished, the embryonic proposal for a replacement and an open letter to leader of the Opposition Mr Ed Miliband. Our response to the DWP select committee’s report on the WCA & ESA inquiry.
