I know too many people who have absolutely nothing wrong with them - and they take advantage of the 'system' and I know people with disabilities and they don't get the help they deserve and they struggle and suffer day to day......... it just isn't right. No one with physical or mental difficulties should be denied the right of living a good, secure and safe life!
Well - it's pretty obvious actually. I have been chronically ill for more years than I can remember, but I was medically retired in 1983 & have been struggling to live on benefits now for almost 30yrs. I KNOW what poverty is like - yes even in the UK - it is SO hard to maintain a family life whilst on benefits from very early infancy up until Further Education. Poverty just became a way of life & still is.(I hasten to add that I was the breadwinner as my ex-husband was also disabled).
I have had health problems in the past, and continue to do so! I know how difficult it is, to acess benefits to help with being mobile and independent.
society should protect the most vulnerable.
I am disabled myself. Thankfully I do not have to use my chair all the time, but a lot of the time. People overlook you, some looks down on you. Not a good feeling.
My son is Autistic. Benefits should go to the disabled not fake ones. I've got crumbling spine with no benefits but I will battle on
our rights are important , no one has the right to take them away from us!
No one chooses to be disabled and everyone deserves to be happy and not have to struggle everyday.
make a difference in someone,s life, let's be selfless.
No one chooses disability, it just happens and people with a disability need to be protected and provided for without question.
