A good example of this injustice is, carers who look after family members full time who are sick, they get paid £50.00 per week and don't have an option to go to work by their own choice, yet if they didn't do this the government would have to fork out billions IMO to do the same job when they have to go and stay in Hospital or a nursing home, a better deal for the carers would be a good start with the funding saved from spongers.

After never being on benefits of any kind (apart from a grant at college) I have to put up with being labelled a scrounger just because I had the misfortune to get injured.

The worst kind of benefits 'cheat' are those who despite having a very comfortable household income to provide for their kids, still claim Child Benefit, as it's given out regardless of income. These people are the same that cry "cheat" at any Daily Mail 'dole-cheat' strapline whilst still claiming for needs that they have no need for!
Make child benefit means-tested and give the savings to those kids who REALLY need a chance
