Mum’s Dial a Ride blow

Local Gazette

MY daughter is handicapped and has cerebral palsy and is a resident in Blenheim House, Thornaby. I live in Marton, she is still classed as a Middlesbrough resident.

We have recently been informed that Dial a Ride is combining with social care and the service will not operate from 3.30pm on Saturday until Monday morning. There seems to have been no recognition for the regular users of the weekend services.
What about the churchgoers and those who want to socialise on a Saturday evening?

My daughter receives £49.10 mobility allowance. How far will that go when the taxi fare is £16 return?

This is blatant discrimination for disabled people.
