Information event to explain benefit changes

A support group is holding an information event next week at which people can find out more information about benefit changes.

The Halifax and Calder Valley branch of the MS Society has organised the event at The Space, Hebden Bridge Town Hall, on Monday, June 3.

Registration will take place from 10am, with the presentations starting at 10.30am.

It will be an opportunity for people with or affected by MS to come along and find out what they need to know about the replacement of Disability Living Allowance with the new benefit Personal Independence Payments (PIP).

Jackie Codman, from the Department of Work and Pensions’ national partnership team, will be doing a presentation about PIP, followed by a question and answer session.

Anybody who would like to attend is asked to contact Liz Schofield on 01422 206692 or email
