This would make equality better for everyone with hidden disabilities. This will help people you know. And let me leave you with this: 20% of people in the world are dyslexic. That is 1 in 5 people

  • Remove nhs contracts with opcare
    Opcare are an independent company contracted by the NHS to assess the needs of disabled patients and help them get the correct mobility aids. They are treating, us, the disabled people as labelled illnesses and not helping with our independent needs... We deserve help and independence, we deserve a reliable assessment centre... Removing opcare will be the first thing the NHS need to do to create a better tomorrow for its disabled patients.

  • Scrap Social Care Charging
    Thousands of disabled and older people throughout the Covid pandemic have experienced social care cuts and increases in care charging. Families are struggling to make ends meet and pay the week's shopping bill. In some cases, people have to make an unenviable choice of heating the home or putting food on the table. Others are being pushed into debt. As Sue explains: "Out of the blue in August, my son got a bill for £4,500. He's nineteen, profoundly disabled. He lives in a care home. I have no idea how we can pay for it. It would clear out most of his account, leaving him with as little as £100 a month to live his life for the rest of his life. We've yet to receive an explanation or how they expect us to pay, and I'm worried this is just the start." Unlike the NHS, social care support is not free, and even people with a meagre income, including those on means-tested benefits, have to pay towards social care. Good social care support helps Disabled and older people to live fulfilling lives with choice, control and dignity to have meaningful relationships, and take part in community life. We are, therefore, calling on the government to abolish social care charging as part of social care reform. And in the interim, we call on the government to ensure Disabled and older people are not forced to pay for social care out of their benefits.

  • We Must Keep The Disabled Parking Bay At The Back Of The Tor - Glastonbury
    This is discrimation against those with disability, and the elderly. There are many disabled and elderly people who come to the Tor and need to park close by, even if they cannot climb to the top of the Tor. There are pathways around the edge. This is an ancient sacred site, and part of this countries heritage, disabled and elderly people should be welcomed to access it. At these times it is absolutely paramount that we stand up for those who are vulnerable in our communities. There is also speculation as to if this parking bay is being removed to make it easier for Wellhouse Lane to become a through road. Along with plans to direct traffic up between the springs, making it difficult for people to stop to get water. Liz Leyshon - Where is your justification for taking away the disabled parking bay? To take away this disabled access bay, goes against your duty as a civil servant to consider all the people in the community and against your duty to consider and adhere to the conditions of the Human Rights Act. Please email Liz Leyshon letting her know that we as the people do not agree with this ‘development’. [email protected]
