Question

My sister-in-law is severely disabled with arthritis. She needs a household (not mobile) telephone where she doesn't need to hold it to her ear with her hands. Where ideally she can press a button or similar to answer the phone. And not have to lean forward into a mike/phone.

Can anyone suggest a suitable products and where it might be purchased

Thank you
Johnie

Question

I suffer from the effects of two head injuries. The symptoms include short-term memory loss, short attention span etc.

I am not happy about the fact that people with brain injuries do not qualify for the higher rate of the mobility component of the DLA, so volunteers and staff at Headway East London and (I hope) Oona King, my MP, are going to help me lobby parliament! I want to find other like-minded people who would like to support my campaign. Can you suggest any organisations I might contact

Many thanks,
BH

Please email any suggestions.

I would expect your local council or owners of the road, if a private road.

Question

Subject: Need advice on housing
Author: Samantha

My toilet and bath tap broke before Christmas. As for my toilet it meant that I would have to get someone to empty a bucket of water into the toilet to get rid of my waste, which was degrading. I felt even more incapable than I already felt. It took until the New Year before it was fixed. My bath taps have to be turned on with pliers, which I cannot do due to wrist injuries as well. All the landlord has said is to get my partner to do it for me. Yet again I find it degrading and I also wish to keep what little independence I have.

Even though the landlord was informed of this too before Christmas, to date it still has not been fix, so I still have to get help to turn on a tap. I feel I have been let down not just as a tenant but also as a disabled tenant. The landlord is well aware of my disabilities and the trouble and upset the lack of repair has cause me. Does anyone know if there is a law to protect disabled people in situations like this one Please someone help Samantha

Answer

Dear Samantha, I am sorry to hear of your plight, but your best option would be to contact the Citizens Advice. I hope they can help. Les

Question

I am a teacher at Drummond Community High School, Edinburgh.

The school has organised an Equality week for S3 (14 and 15 year olds), concentrating on disabilities, and we require posters for the event.

Do you have any posters that you may feel relevant for our Equality Week or know of any organisations who could help us

Thanks and I look forward to your response.

Kindest Regards

Susan L

Answer

Dear Susan, I have contacted a few people, without any reply. I would expect a main disability groups head office, such as the MS society head office in Colindale, north London or similar may be able to help. Les

Question

Is DLA the same thing as SSI
by Scott

Answer

I've never heard of a benefit in this country called SSI. There is SSP which is statutory sick pay. In the united states there is SSI (supplemental security income) for the elderly and disabled people. Could it be a query from overseas Sorry I can't be more help.

With thanks from Norma
