Go To The Top - Protect Against Welfare Reform Impact

BedroomTax

There is possible a huge amount of fall out with the bedroom tax as it stands at the moment .
A serious campaigner for rights who I admire for his work for the underpriviledged sick and disabled of the Uk has a suggestion that personally, if you think the effects of welfare reform will damage your life, not only on Bedroom Tax, but this specific to it should.... 

Here's an idea: Sick and disabled people in the U.K., facing eviction from their homes due to the BedroomTax, should "register" with the UNCRPD Secretary, Jorge Araya:

Jorge Araya
Secretary of the Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
Groups in Focus Section
Human Rights Treaties Division
Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights
E-mail: jaraya@ohchr.org
Tel: +41 22 917 9106
Fax: +41 22 917 9008
Web: http://www.ohchr.org


My suggestion is email your situation to this hugely relevant contact, do not embellish, or be abusive in any way, be truthful and state any concerns you have.
This will make a huge difference should anything happen to you. 
And will highlight your situations to those responsible in top echelons of wellbeing protections. 


An addition is this : 
Sick and disabled people facing eviction registering with the UNCRPD Secretary would impress upon the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) the enormity of the bedroom tax problem. It would also enable the OHCHR to possibly track—and stay in touch with—sick and disabled people who have become homeless.

I don't want Britain's most vulnerable to become "lost" in the system or another nameless statistic in the next release of this report:

The bedroom tax has the potential to become a full-fledged humanitarian crisis.
