Big Benefits Survey 2017:

The Disability Benefits Consortium (of which WAMES is a member) wants to find out more about disabled people’s experiences of applying for and getting benefits. This will help us campaign to make sure the system is fair for disabled people in future.

The survey will take between 10 and 30 minutes to complete. In order for us to understand your experience of the whole process of applying for disability benefits, this survey is best completed once you have gone through your application(s) and know the outcome. However, you are welcome to complete it if you have yet to go through your application process.

Take the survey

This survey will ask you about Employment and Support Allowance (ESA), Personal Independence Payment (PIP) Attendance Allowance (AA) and Universal Credit (UC). However, you will only be asked about the benefits you’ve applied for.

Your responses will remain anonymous, unless you offer to be contacted further to support our campaigning work. Your anonymous responses will not be shared and will only be used by the Disability Benefits Consortium and its members to campaign for improvements to the benefits system.

If you have questions about the survey, please contact DBC Co-Chair Phil Reynolds at

This survey will run on an ongoing basis throughout 2017

The Disability Benefits Consortium (DBC) is a national coalition of over 80 different charities and other organisations committed to working towards a fair benefits system for disabled people, people with long-term conditions and their carers.
