    I have a pride go go elite traveller plus. Pretty basic boot scooter. It's a bit higher than the normal elite traveller so has slightly more clearance but it's probably about the same as yours. Kerbs...

    They are aren't they? Last weekend I was at Tatton Park. Not the gardens (nice but far too tame - they have paths ;)) but the parkland. No proper paths, long grass, steep inclines, tree roots,...

    I don't know about the legalities but dropped kerbs also need to be put where they are needed. If you live somewhere or need to be somewhere but can't cross the road due to no dropped kerb you'd be...

    When you receive your postal vote depends on when it was requested. I think they are being sent out in 2 batches, or something like that. I believe there was some sort of mix up this year with dates...

    I agree with what you say in principle but it's worth pointing out that the DDA was replaced by the Equality Act in 2010 (unless you're in Northern Ireland).

    You don't need your boss's permission to contact Access to Work so it may be worth doing that just to get their input. In my experience you need to ask for something specifically to get things...

    Just to re-iterate what Fliss has said. I am in a similar position and have recently had an Access to work assessment and raised the issue of getting a wheelchair through AtW (it wasn't the main...

    I agree that we have to be careful in making judgements about people who don't look disabled but are using accessible toilets (although that situation with the kids is madden). They aren't just for...

    I don't know about that bulb in particular but usually they just go into a period of dormancy when it turns colder. Recent winters have been mild (early on especially) so lots of bulbs come up early...

    I don't think it's a case of which is the most cost effective option but which is best for you. If you're able to walk with a rollator using that as much as possible will be beneficial. Using a...

    Mine too. This is depressing news. I would struggle so much financially without the daily living component.

    Been rather disappointed with this year's christmas ads - none really stand out for me (except for perhaps the Aldi JL spoof!)

    Bottle/jar openers - recommendations?

    Anyone got any recommendations for devices to help open bottles, jars etc? My problem is mainly with my wrists being very weak rather than with hand grip (although that is a slight problem). I can...

    Charging the batteries is something I've never really got the hang of as there is so much conflicting info out there. Even the manual that came with has conflicting info - in one place it implies...

    Sorry you had a bad experience, Fliss. It's fine when people want to help but sometimes they go over the top and end up being patronising which is not good. I have no problem with people offering...
