Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC) are looking for disabled people to speak to a national newspaper about problems they have had with zero hours contracts. If you think you might be willing to speak to the paper please contact

Even if you don’t want to speak to the paper but have information you are willing to share with DPAC please email.

Your information might, for example, cover:

– not being granted reasonable adjustments

– the impact of zero hours contracts on your impairment or health

– the impact of being disabled on your ability to meet your zero hours contract

– being dismissed

– ill-treatment in the workplace

– financial problems

– being pressured into a zero hours contract by JCP/DWP


Thank you for any help you can give.

  1. Hi Ellen,

    I wonder if you could help me. I am a Specialist Occupational Therapist working with people with Multiple Sclerosis and a large area of my workload is supporting people at work to make reasonable adjustments etc. I am due to speak at an MS conference in Sept and an area they want me to cover is impact of zero hours on disabled people. So I was interested in the response you had received from your web page and whether you had any statistics/feedback you could share from your research.

    Yours hopefully
