Legal action (inquest) against DWP over death


Senior Member
Sister of David Clapson who was high profile case of dying form DWP sanctioning his £71 per week and left his starving and w/o electricity for his diabetic medication is crowdfunding for an inquest as DWP have ignored this issue.


She is rasing money on crowdjustice website. Anyone who wants in the UK to donate as inquest will benefit everyone who relies on terrible DWP decision-making.

Good website for us to note and make use for any ME crowd funded legal action in future.
