Hear Us Open Forum meeting – 1st April 2014 – “The April Big Benefits Meeting”

Matthew Mckenzie attended this very informative meeting.

He has done great audio and video blogs as well as taking some photos.


There were presentations from Active Minds and Employment Support — a new service. Kam Patel: Personal Independence Payment — replacing DLA (Disability Living Allowance). Croydon Discretionary Scheme (CDS), Replacing social funding e.g. crisis loans and Access to Work with Special Guest Mary Dunleavy, Q and A session on PIP.

The audio and video blogs contain a huge amount of information on benefits, access to work, PIP payments and more!  They are well worth a watch or a listen.
