UK Benefit Claimants
Merton Claimants Action Group - We are a group of claimants who are fed up of being pushed around and waiting for the next round of benefit cuts. The group gives a voice to the unemployed, single parents, the sick, and the disabled who claim benefits. We do not just campaign around the issue of benefits but are also here to act as a resource centre for Claimants to become active. For example we managed to help some claimants who wished to set up South London Community Radio Group.
Nottingham Claimants Action - Committed to fighting the imposition of the Job Seekers Allowance benefits regime, and attempts by the DSS to force claimants on to 'workfare' schemes like the previous Project Work pilots or New Labour's Welfare to Work, part of the bogus New Deal. We changed our name from Nottingham Campaign Against the Job Seekers Allowance so as to reflect the wider struggle.
