Tax credit cuts

In July, the government announced plans to cut tax credits. This could have affected around 150,000 families with disabeld childen.

What we achieved

  • The Chancellor scrapped tax credit cuts in the November spending review. Thanks to thousands of our supporters to help make this happen.

What we wanted

  • The government to think again about making these cuts as they impact on too many families with disabled children.

What we did

  • We organised a twitter campaign ahead of the tax credits cuts vote to encourage MPs to vote against changes - read our tax credit cuts briefing [.DOC].
  • We worked with the press and family case studies to highlight the impact of tax credit cuts on disabled children. See the Sun's article.
  • We organised a petition to gain support for our campaign.
