Scrap the PIP 20 metre rule


Vote

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurological condition that affects over 100,000 people in the UK. It’s often painful and exhausting and causes problems with how we walk, move, see, think and feel. We’re here for everyone with MS, through the highs, lows and everything in between.


Having MS is hard enough – it shouldn’t be made harder by a welfare system that doesn’t make sense. But we know people in our community are losing access to the support they need to live independent lives. And it's because of the 20 metre rule.

 

20 metres is an arbitrary distance. But if you can walk just one step over it, the UK Government says you don’t need higher level mobility support.

 

We teamed up with RAW London and people with MS from our community to send a message to UK Government: 


Enough is enough. We developed the treatment together and shot the film in one day.


When we launched, people from our community told us ‘This is how I feel’ and it inspired other disability charities like Parkinson’s UK to get behind the campaign.

‘Scrap the PIP 20 metre rule’ had over 200,000 views and helped drive 36,000 people to sign our petition.
