Stop making people travel unfair distances for disability assessments

Reason for signing

  • My mum has sever depression and is currently recovering from an operation and cannot walk but they are making her attend an assessment (which she cannot physically get to alone so expecting family members who are currently looking after her as well as trying to work and look after children) to take her - and it's around 45 minutes drive each way! To postpone the assessment she has to pay £30 for a letter from her doctor! Absolutely ridiculous!
