Mobilise for DLA
Our campaign to save DLA mobility for people living in residential care saw a 7000 signature petition, over 200 stories in the local and national news and over a thousand people writing to their MP.

The Low Review, chaired by Lord Low with Leonard Cheshire Disability and Mencap supporting, saw over 800 submissions. Its final report — Independence, Choice and Control
— found that DLA mobility was vital for individuals in residential care to maintain their independence.
All the hard work paid off and the government announced it would keep mobility payments for people living in residential care. This includes people claiming the mobility component of Personal Independence Payment (replacing Disability Living Allowance) as itís introduced.
