  1. Once you all come together and speak with one voice you become stronger with the ability to raise money and take the fight to a court of law because what this Government is doing is outright wrong and a breach of human rights against disabled people in society that do not have a voice. Together you will become strong !

  2. Hello it’s so comforting to know so many so so much for the so many. Obviously I’m NOT Refering to the Brittish Gavernment

    I can only pray the Issue’s Of Hate Crime Abuse Stigma/discrimination get discussed along with the fact so many of us are being denied access to Legal representation. especially important when up against abusive Local Authorities and partners. Of which I’m most definately a victim of. pretty soon the above might well be a National Sport if not tackled.

    Paul.
