Ruth Gaskin is chronically ill, and has been virtually house bound for many years, with a list of debilitating conditions that require a cocktail of medication for pain management. At the beginning of June 2019, Birmingham City Council demanded that she pay back £5000 in allegedly 'overpaid' housing benefit. They want the money repaid within 2 weeks and have cancelled her housing benefits. This is not the first time Ruth has had to endure the dehumanising process of losing her support, or fighting an unnecessary and lengthy appeal.
Tragically, this isn't a unique case. Raise The Ruth is also part of a wider campaign to raise awareness about the devastating impact DWP policies and arbitrary sanctions are having on some of the most vulnerable people in our communities.
100% of profit generated from this event will be donated to this cause.
