Campaign For a Fair Society
Campaign For a Fair Society is a non-profit conglomerate of organisations and individuals working together to alleviate the impact of the welfare cuts on disabled people and campaigning to end the discrimination against disabled citizens.
More than £7 billion of the government’s £27 billion cuts will be borne by less than 2% of the population – the most vulnerable. These are unfair cuts.
The Campaign For a Fair Society will protest against these cuts and show that there is an alternative.
The Campaign wants power and control to shift from government to citizens, families and communities. But we don’t want the government’s ‘Big Society’ if that means a loss of basic human rights and unfair cuts focused on the most vulnerable. We want a fair society.
A fair society sees each of its members as a full citizen – a unique person with a life of their own. A fair society is organised to support everyone to live a full life that has meaning and respect.
The Campaign launched its Manifesto at the House of Lords on 12 March 2012.
- says that the government’s cuts are unfair – they target disabled people and those living in poverty
