Its not too late to have your say on the Government’s plans to refor Disability Living Allowance (DLA).
The Government plans to get rid of DLA and replace it with something called Personal Independence Payment or PIP.
Under the PIP everyone will have a medical – if it is a medical based on the work capability assessment (ESA) it may cost a lot more than it saves, as many people successfully appeal the refusal of benefits.
The move away from mobility and towards “getting around” is likely to mean many wheelchair and scooter users will no longer get mobility help, which may have a huge impact on their ability to get an adapted car.
There are big changes, so have your say!
