Campaigning for increased mobility support

Friday, October 17, 2008

Heeley MP Meg Munn met with a group of her constituents who had travelled to Parliament to campaign for greater support from the Disability Living Allowance, specifically more mobility support. They were part of a day of lobbying organised by the Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB).

 

They explained to Meg that it’s important to have independence, whether going to work, hospital visits or being a parent to your children and being able to take them out on your own. Currently they rely on the good will of friends and family, or take taxis which are expensive. Mobility support is currently only considered when people are in wheelchairs, but the problems associated with visual impairment are deserving of help and support.

 

Meg said:

 

‘I’m sympathetic to their concerns and have written to the Minister responsible to raise their concerns. I have also contacted First Bus Company about problems my constituents experience with their services. It was a pleasure to meet them and hear their concerns.’
