Since 2010 the UK Government has carried out a series of cuts or misnamed 'welfare reforms' which have reduced the incomes of disabled people and people in poverty. In addition severe cuts to local government are converted into cuts to social care for children and adults with disabilities. The overall impact of these cuts is to target cuts on disabled people.
