I have just heard of a Department for Work and Pensions current consultation document that includes a proposal to withdraw Access to Work Funding from Public sector bodies – see the link below.
The relevant section is Chapter 5 from page 57 onwards and, in particular, paragraphs 23 – 25. The consultation questions are on page 64.
At Leeds university there are some individuals who are planning to respond in their own right and they are looking into the practicality of a University response.
Would you consider a response from your own HEIs, in which case the deadline for responses is 10th March.
A mass response is being organised from the University of London. If you are interested in lending your support to this response, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
They have stopped paying for palantypists in Scotland, and I don’t want England to go down the same road or I’ll be working in a cat food factory!
