It’s worth the fight

You may have read my previous post on disability and my dealings with the local council, in which they refused to accept that my disability was what I said it was, or that I could know for myself  which properties I could actually cope with. Well we got some good news yesterday, after we sent them a letter explaining all the reasons that their policy was flawed they have written back to say that we are right and that they will no longer go against our bids. But even better than that, they are changing this across the board. Not only are things better for us now, but they are better for other families in similar circumstances.

Being disabled feels like a constant fight, but some fights are worth doing. So thank you to everyone who advised us and supported us, with special thanks to Shelter.
