As seen in the para games we don't want sympathy but we do need care

I had a breakdown trying to fight the withdrawal of respite care for my daughter 12 years ago. Apparently it's now being taught as a case study.
It wrecked my career and marriage. I think the government's actions are appalling and encourage everyone to sign.

I have a family story that goes back 16 years. It was a long, very hard battle with the system. Everyone should fight for this cause

Without Direct Payments and the support I now have in place I wouldn't be here. Getting support was a long and treacherous heart wrenching process. I urge people to open their minds and understand disability at all levels. Consider what it means to have so few life choices. I consider my self extremely lucky, and I am, because not every country affords its disabled citizens this entitlement. Without it I have no doubt that my illness would have driven me to my death eventually. I am...

Without Direct Payments and the support I now have in place I wouldn't be here. Getting support was a long and treacherous heart wrenching process. I urge people to open their minds and understand disability at all levels. Consider what it means to have so few life choices. I consider my self extremely lucky, and I am, because not every country affords its disabled citizens this entitlement. Without it I have no doubt that my illness would have driven me to my death eventually. I am physically impaired and at one point cost me my mental health, which almost cost me my life. I am not alone and I dread to think of how many others are 'out there' enduring much torment and stigma based mental abuse as a result of not being heard, or simply being too weak mentally and physically to fight for what they need. If you sign the petition you will be making a difference, and simply raising awareness can not be underestimated.

I'm a 43 year-old single Mum, I'm blind from birth, with 3 sons, the youngest of whom is profoundly autistic. Life has been cruel to us, and I'm scared stiff of losing DLA, carers' allowance etc. I receive 18 hours' dp a week, which is up for review, but will my son get dp when he reaches 18 in a couple of months? He sure needs it? thankyou for reading our story. Jennie. xx

The curremt cuts to disability benefit are proving to be dangerous to people with disabilities. The percentage of fraud in this area is extremely low & there are other less harmful ways for the government to reduce spending. As Mum to an amazing autistic 9 year old I urge you to do what you can to send a message to the government that we care about our children and adults with disabilities.
