Defend Disabled People’s Right To Independent Living


The ILF is a lifeline to severely disabled people. It would actually cost Social Care MORE by scrapping this very important fund.
We have spent decades moving disabled people out of institutions – and rightly so – and the TORY Party want to undo all that GOOD work. Don’t severely disabled people deserve lives? Deserve the chance to have jobs? And to ‘fit in’ to society?

As a wheelchair user myself, and before illness, having cared for my own mum, whom has multiple sclerosis, I/we feel unimportant to the TORY Party, who have made it clear that they do not have empathy nor understanding when it comes to disability.

The ILF is a life saver for some. WHY are they taking away something that IS cost effective? It just does not make sense.

We need to fight this all the way!
