VIAS is a proud member of Scotland Agaist the Care Tax (SACT), we were part of the petition asking for the abolition of social care charges for older and disabled people, along with Amanda Kopel’s petition, asking for free personal care for people under 65.
Every year in local authorities are asking disabled people to pay more for their support needs now we have HMRC asking for their bit. This could be the last straw for many disabled people who have to choose between eating, heating or getting the support they need to live a normal life.
VIAS is happy to be part of the SACT video created by Kiana Kalantar-Hormozi with Media Co-op, please watch and share the film 'Tax On Me'
Excitingly the Daily Record has taken an interest in this campaign and has written about two stories so far, the first based around Kiana Kalantar-Hormozi and the short film Tax on Me, read the atical HERE
The second article is focused on Jeff's story "Jeff Adamson has to pay towards the basic care he needs to dress, eat and live and says the charges are 'soul-destroying'" read more - HERE
