Potential legal challenge on government’s refusal to increase legacy benefits - claimants needed
Z2K is working with the Public Law Project on a legal challenge to the Government’s refusal to uplift of legacy benefits by the same £20 a week as has been given to Universal Credit claimants since April. The challenge is on the basis that this discriminates against disabled and seriously unwell people in receipt of ESA and others in receipt of JSA and Income Support.
They are looking for prospective claimants to be involved in this legal challenge. They need to be eligible for legal aid for this so it would not cost them anything other than time to be involved in the challenge.
