General Election 2019
Next month there is a General Election. In response to this, MND Scotland has produced a manifesto for people affected by MND.
Last year, with your help, we successfully campaigned with Marie Curie for a fairer system of fast-tracking certain social security benefits, which are to be delivered from Scotland, from 2021.
However, some benefits will continue to be administered by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP). For these benefits, people with MND in Scotland will still need to prove they only have 6 months left to live to be fast-tracked.
We, and many other charities, want Scotland’s new fairer system rolled out across the UK. Without this, people with MND in Scotland will have an unfair, two-tier system, and we need your help to change this.
All you have to do is follow these simple steps and ask your local candidate to pledge their support for MND Scotland’s Manifesto.
