Work Capability Assessment (WCA)

We've got an opportunity to try and ensure the Work Capability Assessment is fit for purpose, but we need your help!

Employment Support Allowance (ESA) is a vital source of income for people who have limited capability for work because of illness and disability, and offers support for people who might be helped into work but need extra time and support.

To receive this vital support, claimants must go through the Work Capability Assessment (WCA).

What's going wrong?

The WCA fails to properly assess the barriers that blind and partially sighted people face in obtaining employment causing hundreds of blind and partially sighted people to be removed both from benefit support and from the help and support they need to find work.

You can take our WCA quiz to find out how bad it is for blind and partially sighted people.

Tell the Government what you think

The Government have appointed an independent reviewer to look at the WCA. You can let them know what you think of it!
