wish i could win the lottery i'd give you it myself!
i could be doing with a wee windfall too, brook miller phoned last week to say the WAV's coming in 4 weeks instead of the 10 i was expecting so i had a major panic that i wouldnt have all the money in time, then the other day my mum phoned to say she'd got a loan out of the credit union for what i was short!
you sound like you're having a rough time lately, did you manage to get someone sorted to go to the SKIUK camp?
have you asked about getting a charity to donate towards the deposit? There are quite alot that would consider it-local Lions and Freemasons especially. Put something in the local paper lamenting the cost of having a severe disability or maybe organise a fundraiser in the pub etc???? I know that you are really busy and probably wont have the time but it might be worth the effort!!
This system is fatally flawed. Those in a position like yours riven, should get the most they can, that they NEED! I can't imagine what you go through to get a car like this, my uncle gets his covered by high rate mobility....why for a severe disability do they skimp on the help!
Its totally frustrating to try to get transport for a wheelchair user - everything is just so much more!
Why is it that one higher rate mobility DLA recipient can get the car "free" yet another has to pay thousands just because that person can't stand up so needs a WAV? It that fair? Or is life just never fair and we have to lump it?
You know that's not ther easons for the bills don't you (though I know it feels like it)- just doing our council tax benefit claim and they need same thing- bills for prrof of ID as they do when opeing bank account, CB proves you are 'main carer' for child, bank statements so they can check you're not laundering money for the Mafia.
