Questionnaire on online government services

Share

Government services have increasingly moved online. Has this created a problem for you or the people you help? If so, we want to hear from you.

For example, has it been harder claiming Employment Support Allowance, Universal Credit, Job Seekers Allowance, Personal Independence Payment, Housing Benefit, Council Tax Reduction, or Pension Credit? If so, please fill in our questionnaire. We want to hear from you about your experiences so we can ensure that people still have a choice over how they engage with government services.

    Many Deaf BSL users share the literacy problems of other disabled people eg people with learning difficulties and also other people for whom English is not their first language or preferred language. Many older people have limited understanding and fluency with technology.
