Trapped in their homes, not allowed out to enjoy their independence spending time with loved ones.
Teenagers that can’t socialize with friends.
Parents who can’t take their children to school or watch that school play.
Families that can’t spend time together enjoying a nice day out.
Academics that can’t apply for that job they want.
How would you feel if all of a sudden you were stopped from following YOUR dreams ?
What about if you couldn’t spend time with your family.
Who would take your children to school or the park.
What would you do all day ?
How would you earn money to pay the mortgage and bills?
What about food shopping?
The British Red Cross warned in 2018 that a UK-wide shortage of wheelchairs was leaving as many as 4 million people a year housebound and isolated, some of whom are terminally ill and are spending the last few months of their life trapped at home.
Below is the equity law put in place to make sure disabled people could live their life the same as everyone else . Somehow it’s not working , the chain is broken and we need to find that link and put it back together.
Up to 4 years someone can wait for an NHS electric wheelchair and that is if they qualify for one.
It’s heartbreaking to say that most people isolated at home , prisoners in their homes because they dont have access to a wheelchair or electric wheelchair.
They haven’t had a care worker to support them to use public transport.
Or a companion to go with them to a group to introduce them to everyone.
PRISONERS GET MORE RIGHTS THAN DISABLED PEOPLE.
They get their hour outside in the fresh air everyday.
They have activities, courses etc etc
I’ve had no heating or hot water in my property since September 24th .
There’s a lady who can’t find suitable affordable accommodation so it means she is stuck in all the time.
It just doesn’t seem right or fair.
I don’t want to do self pity and I’m sure the people I talk about wouldn’t either……. I’m just saying we got the crappy deal in life ,we are just trying to get on with it in the best way we can. Don’t we deserve the right to access the world outside in an appropriate vehicle.
My goodness let’s cut the budget for ministers cars or second homes etc . Let us get our priorities right.
LET’S RELEASE THESE PRISONERS!!
LET’S GIVE THEM FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE (oh my lord I’m sounding like William Wallace!)
LET’S HELP THEM GET OUT INTO THE WORLD SO THEY CAN LIVE THEIR LIVES HOW THEY WANT TO.
