    I feel that there is so much that is wrong with the treatment of disabled people. As I have been commenting on housing and the virtual non existence of housing suitable for Wheelchair, and Power Wheelchair users. Category 2/3. Many disabled people live in unsuitable properties.
    I know that Ed Davey is very supportive of the need to improve carers, that has been so difficult for many over the lock down. Shopping is another, visually impaired people were prevented in one supermarket because they couldn’t socially distance.
    I think one of the most distressing things I found out was that around 30 disabled people lived in the Tower block, I still find that a painful subject.
