Dear Prime Minister…

Following Wednesday’s comprehensive spending review, I think it’s safe to say that the country has been left reeling, wondering what the next four years and the future holds. One particular community fearing what the cuts will mean to their day-to-day lives, support and care, is that of people living with disabilities and
long-term health conditions.

There are over 10 million disabled people in Britain, of whom 5 million are over state pension age.

Yesterday we announced the exciting news that the Enabled by Design team will be joined by two online community managers, one of whom is Kaliya Franklin (AKA BendyGirl). So we’re extremely proud to see Kaliya being featured on the front page of the Guardian website today, with her heartfelt plea to the Prime Minister:

Congratulations Kaliya for getting out there and making your voice heard, keep up the good work! : )
