It’s been a busy week in welfare benefits! The National AIDS Trust had some successes and new opportunities in their campaigning for a disability benefits system that meets the needs of people living with HIV.
They wish to thank everyone who came out to join them at the Hardest Hit march yesterday. It was a very successful day, with 5000 disabled people marching together against benefits cuts that will hit them the hardest. It was great to see so many people marching together on behalf of people living with HIV.
There was lots of media coverage, including a Guardian live blog, and on Twitter #hardesthit was trending throughout the day. @NAT_AIDS_Trust was live-tweeting from the march- follow them to see what we were saying!
