This Coalition government continually ignores public feeling, and evidence, on so many aspects of our lives. I firmly believe though that this is the beginning of the change. A change, for the better, which will come – for all disabled people and their carers. The voices of PP will not be silenced. With so many others we are building alliances – together we keep fighting and we will be heard.
The human cost of disability cuts – read letter submitted to the Guardian here , copy to be sent to Maria Miller.
