BBC link to 'Work for benefits' article - comments by Scope

This BBC news article is on the government's 'Work for benefits' plan.

What really struck the chord was the comment from the chief executive of Scope "Disabled people face a myriad of barriers in finding employment, including negative attitudes from employers and inadequate social care support. Punitive measures against individual disabled claimants will do nothing to remove these barriers" citing the "target-led ethos" underpinning the reforms.
