Department for Work & Persecution at it again.

Grandad, 62, battered by six-foot security guard while attending ‘cruel’ disability assessment with his wife

EXCLUSIVE: Keith Langham, 62, needed seven stitches to a head wound after an assault by Chris Bryan while accompanying his disabled wife to an assessment.

Won’t stop, will they?

Northern Rail: Inaccessible by the disabled on scooters.

After a direct mail to Northern Rail, a post on Facebook replied with their official policy. Access to services by all seems to be ignored by this company… as this girl has found out. Why? My place of work had to fix this, even 20-odd years ago! Why do they get a free pass?

Shameful, and they need to be dragged into the 21st Century. By their balls.

DWP, disabled (no) rights…

Citizens Advice Bureau is now defunct in Trafford. Their duties are now taken by Trafford Council, who’s helpline is open for three hours a day and is always busy. “Thank you for calling, goodbye!”. Sooo… no help from anyone if you’re in Trafford.
Got through to TMBC eventually, now there’s no such thing as “hardship payments”, but will tell you where the local foodbanks are. They’ll also try to put a little cash on your meter card… no help at all if you pay by direct debit, though… And that’s it.
Well, we all seem to be happy to live in an economy, rather than a society.
God help those who are totally reliant on the system…
Update late 2016:- Seems as though CAB are back up & running, but with a much reduced capacity. Contact them directly for further info.
