The Hardest Hit at Christmas

The Hardest Hit coalition wants to present the government with a giant card filled with the messages and signatures of thousands of disabled people, their carers, friends and families.

This Christmas we are not asking for gifts, but we do want our basic rights protected and the support to enable us to live independently and with dignity.

Please join 18,000 people who have already signed the card and add your message today and encourage your friends and family to do the same.

Sign the card to leave your message to the Government!

The Hardest Hit campaign
Defending our benefits, services, jobs and rights.
As disabled people face threats to benefits, cuts in services, a hostile job market and every day rising costs of living, the Hardest Hit coalition have come together to protect disabled people's rights and independence.

Led by UK Council of Disabled People, Disability Benefits Consortium and the Disability Charities Consortium, the Hardest Hit coalition is made up of over 50 organisations and groups of disabled people from across the disability sector.
Year of action
2011 saw national and regional demonstrations, marches and lobbies all over the country under the banner of "The Hardest Hit."

In May around 8,000 people marched past Parliament and lobbied MPs in London as the Welfare Reform Bill reached a critical stage in the House of Commons. Then, as the Bill moved into the House of Lords, thousands of disabled people, their families and friends once again took to the streets in cities across the UK protesting against Government cuts to disability benefits and services.

Our Facebook and Flickr pages have pictures of the Hardest Hit events, as well as RNIB campaigners who couldn't be there but wanted to show their support for the campaign.

You can follow all the action by following @RNIB_campaigns or #HardestHit on Twitter.
