Disability News Service

Edited by John Pring


Disability News Service (DNS) is the country’s only news agency dedicated to news impacting on the disabled community. John Pring is the Editor of the DNS and is a highly valued and trusted journalist. Over the years, he identified the ongoing negative impact created by successive UK governments, whose social policies caused preventable harm to chronically ill and disabled people who are unfit to work and least able to protest. John’s work gives a voice to the disabled community and, to date, he’s the only journalist to expose the corporate influence of Unum Insurance with British social policies since 1992. John identifies the ongoing activities of the Department for Work and Pensions which cause preventable harm to the disabled community who live in fear of their next flawed assessment, as the UK welfare state moves ever closer to being demolished, which fulfils ‘Thatcher’s Dark Legacy’. Below are selected links to John’s published news stories, and I am very grateful for permission to highlight his work.

Cash Not Care: the planned demolition of the UK welfare state

Published in September 2016, Cash Not Care: the planned demolition of the UK welfare state is the research evidence the Coalition government tried to suppress, now in a book the Conservative government(s) hope no-one will notice.

Whilst the entire British press have been silenced, and refuse to offer the public access to the influence of corporate America with UK social policy reforms since 1992, Cash Not Care is now in the libraries of universities in the UK and in Australia, and is recommended reading for various social policy courses. The research evidence in the book is being used to educate social policy academics of the future.
