Tell us your story - welfare and benefits
For us to truly understand how the welfare system functions for people with experience of mental distress - what the problems are and how it could be improved - we need to hear from people with first-hand experience.
If you have a story about the WCA, DLA, back-to-work schemes, or any other aspects of welfare or benefits that you'd like to tell us about, then please fill in the form at the bottom of the page. Please provide as much information as possible about when your experience took place, what happened and how it impacted on you.
Where you can get help
We use people’s stories as case studies to inform and strengthen our efforts to bring about changes to legislation and practice. Due to issues of capacity and expertise, the Policy and Campaigns team are not able to offer personal support or advice, or to take up cases or campaigns on behalf of individuals.
