I hold power of attorney for my uncle who has been through numerous work capability assessments and social security tribunals. Without me helping to advocate on his behalf, I know that my uncle would have found himself cut off from the disability payments he relies on. The independent advocacy service run by the ALLIANCE is an absolutely vital lifeline for people. RISE fully supports such services and we would encourage you to look at our manifesto which discusses establishing an economic justice fund to better support such services and further them.
