Weʼre raising £315 to PIP assessment recording kits to loan free to Claimants for their interviews.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

Story

We have raised funds for two pip assessment recording kits.
It has immediately become apparent that this is not enough.
each kit costs £105 to put together comprises of 2 cassette recorders for blank cassette tapes and an extension lead in an aluminium case we have a technician supporting as who PAT tests these kits for us for free.
We estimate if we can have a total of 5 PIP assessment recording kits then we can adequately support claimants in our city.
This is because each claimant will need to hold their kits for a minimum of 3 days. The day before the assessment, the day of the assessment and the day after the assessment when it is returned.
If we are successful in adequately Supporting Sheffield Claimants we aim to roll this scheme out to other areas of the country.
We are well versed in in what types of equipment are allowed to be used by ATOS and Capita, and these recording kits have already been successfully used by claimants in our city.
Please email dpacsheffield@gmail.com with any queries.

    Thank you to everyone for your ongoing support, whether it's been to donate, to share this fundraiser or to help disabled people by letting them know about the project. Yesterday some DPAC Sheffield members went to Hull to meet Emma Hardy MP as her team are launching the project for her Constituency. Emma has bought this kit for her constituents to use. We hope others will follow her lead! https://twitter.com/EmmaHardyMP/status/1230169229527261184?s=19

    Thank you all so very very much. We cannot thank you enough, or emphasise how much your kindness will help so many people. We are able to send a kit to nearby Derbyshire too due to your generosity! We are so lifted that despite what the DWP ATOS and Capita are putting us through that there are good hearted people who care and want to support us. There is strength in unity! Solidarity, DPAC Sheffield 😊
