       Lies, Damn Lies, ATOS and DWP

DPAC want to make it very clear that we are not and will never be
involved with Atos except as challengers to their process which leaves 73
people per week dead through taking their own lives or through being
disabled /ill and which leaves other without income. Nor do we support
either Atos or Capita contracts for carrying out PIP assessments.

DPAC are seeking legal advice and will be challenging ATOS claims in
their PIP tender that they have consulted with us about PIP. Of course
maybe they mean they read our leaflets when we’ve been protesting
around the country both inside and outside their offices. Maybe their CEO
has been suffering from hallucinations.

Also we have not been involved in any meaningful dialogue with DWP
over the Independent Living Fund’s future.

This is what ATOS said untruthfully in their tender

Atos has a successful record of engagement with
Claimant Representative Groups (CRG), Special
Interest and Pressure Groups who
represent claimants affected by sickness and/or
disability, and we have experience and
understanding of the challenges and
opportunities that this presents. We make sure
that we have clear objectives, and a solid
understanding of the engagement intent and
messaging.
CRGs are important both as representative
groups of claimants with expertise on specific
disability issues and as the first port of call
for claimant concerns with service delivery.

Establishing relationships based on honesty
and trust will help Atos and the Authority to
improve overall understanding of PIP across a
wide range of groups, and will feed into
continuous service improvement.
We engage with
 Citizens Advice,

 Mencap,

 MIND,

 Disability Rights UK,

 Macmillan Cancer Support,

 SENSE,

 Rethink,

 RNIB,

 DPAC,
   Northern Ireland Association for Mental
    Health,
   National Autistic Society and
   the Scottish Association of Mental Health

amongst others at a national level and regularly
meet with representatives at a local level to
explain our role and discuss their concerns. We
currently have a database of more than 300
local CRGs for outbound communications.
=====================================
There is also this from paragraph 7 on page 31
We currently pro-actively monitor websites
and social media using the expertise of our
suppliers Big Mouth Media for mentions of Atos
and disability assessments, and we will extend
this during PIP. These on-line services are an
opportunity for local and national engagement
with the Atos team, and for the general public to
draw areas of concern to our attention.
