Can I just remind everybody that the Forums will be closed for new posts at 6.00pm today, open again at 10am on Monday.

They will still be available; for browsing existing messages, the FAQs and the search facility.

The number of new posts has been regularly exceeding 300 per day and often more than 400, each post has to be read and verified by a Moderator prior to approval, and that ignores the work needed to reply to questions and problems.

All of the Moderators are volunteers and are disabled themselves, and in some cases have to care for disabled partners.

It is not practical for us to provide a 24x7 service, so it was agreed with the site manager, that we would close over the weekend. Afterall the DWP don't work weekends :)

To all Mods and members, hope you have a peaceful weekend, particularly as this week has been so hard going!

Also, a personal big 'thankyou' to everyone who has sent me advice and support for my tribunal on Monday! It is extremely appreciated! :)

And I really hope Jim and Pete are much better soon.

Best Wishes,
Rachel :)
