IN JUNE THE INDEPENDENT LIVING FUND IS 25 YEARS OLD.
The ILF has been invaluable to enable disabled people to live independently now without even any vote in parliament or any discussion the Butchers of Benefits have announced it will close from 2015 with no replacement funding for more than 12 months maximum. Many local authorities have said this will result in disabled people being forced back into institutions or left to rot in their own homes without adequate levels of support.
On June 10th we’re going to have a birthday celebration with some others including hopefully a magician, street theatre, and cake plus lots of birthday cards to go to our DWP ministers.
We’re all meeting up between 1.30 pm and 2pm at Deans Yard, SW1P 3PA which is at the back of Westminster Abbey (ie the side that isn’t opposite House of Commons).
Nearest accessible tube is Westminster and for other travel information contact Transport for All http://www.transportforall.org.uk/
Hope to see you all there. Feel free to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can come to this. Bring friends, banners, and noise plus cakes if you can.
