Scrap Mobility Allowance and The Motorised Transport Grant ?
Tuesday 26th February2013
Government to make us prisoners in our own homes!
The Center for Independent Living is appalled at the Government announcement Tuesday evening to scrap the mobility allowance and Motorised Transport Grant. "It is an absolutely outrageous attack on the rights of people with disabilities and flies in the face of the National Disability Strategy, instead of accommodating the inclusion of people with disabilities in the community this will lead to greater exclusion and isolation especially for those living in rural areas." said Michael McCabe, chairperson of Center for Independent Living.
