In March 2017, our Policy & Campaigns Officer, Sam Ashton, gave evidence to the committee as part of its inquiry into the assessment processes for Employment Support Allowance and Personal Independence Payments. Watch here to see why we think these assessments need to be fundamentally reformed.
Last Saturday, I was privileged to attend a memorial service for Z2K’s founder – the Reverend Paul Nicolson. It was a deeply moving occasion, with wonderful stories of Paul’s life from his children and tributes from colleagues in the many campaigns he was involved in. My kids will testify I’m not much of a singer, but even I got swept up in the rousing rendition of the Battle Hymn of the Republic – aka “Mine eyes have seen the glory”. Thankfully, the congregation of Tottenham’s St Paul the Apostle church was on hand to sing it the way it’s meant to be sung!
