Protestors took to the streets today in support of a charity whose funding has been slashed by Lincolnshire County Council.
Homestart says more than 500 vulnerable families could be affected by the cut, but the local authority says it faces difficult financial decisions, and has had no choice.
Trade unionists and anti-cuts campaigners will hold a protest against cuts in Lincoln city centre as the Budget is announced in Parliament.
The protest has been called by a Lincoln & District TUC - a union federation whose affiliated branches represent thousands of workers in the public- and private-sector in the Lincoln area - and is also being supported by Lincoln Disabled People Against Cuts.**
Protestors in Chesterfield claim disabled people are being forced back into work when they are not well enough.
Dressed as UN representatives, the campaigners say they are conducting an "investigation into alleged human rights abuses".
But the company who assess people claiming benefits for disabilities say they use accredited doctors and nurses.
"We are committed to helping people who are capable of work get off benefits and into paid employment, while giving unconditional support to those who need it.
"A decision on whether someone is well enough to work is taken following a thorough assessment and after consideration of all the supporting medical evidence provided by the claimant.
"The percentage of people entitled to Employment and Support Allowance is now at its highest level, with over half of people eligible for it."
