The SMSD are inviting organisations concerned with such issues as, amongst other things, supporting amendments to keep child benefit out of the benefit cap, extending concessions to women fleeing domestic violence, and opposing cuts to disability benefits to attend the lobby. Those unable to attend the lobby are urged to get in touch with their MP or the Lords’​.
