  1. Hi HB, I've had a look online myself and the rules are vague. They (I think) have only been released within the last few days. Why I need one - whilst I do hear some things, I don't hear where sound comes from. I've lost more of my vision and now have tunnel vision in one eye plus rather limited vision in my slightly better eye. Whilst obviously I'm not driving, it would make life much easier to park closer to the entrance and exits.
  2. Does anyone know where I can find a list of the new rules of who will be entitled to a blue badge at the end of August please? All I can find is some people with mental health issues / learning disabilities. But nothing for people like me who receive enhanced mobility PIP who have (amongst things) dual sense loss. But because I'm "only" sight impaired / partially sighted, I can't get a blue badge currently. I don't get any points (and I doubt it's why I got any for mobility) for PIP for my Autism either.
  3. As it's not aimed at a particular company or railway station, I'm not sure who I need to contact for this, or indeed where to start: I was at Bristol Parkway station last weekend and managed to slip between the gap between the train and platform. Thankfully, I have enough strength to pull myself up. I was taken to hospital, checked over and discharged. I was then put on the next train home. Having talked to railway staff, I was told that this unfortunately isn't that unusual. I've been advised to make a complaint about this. I'm not after any compensation. It's purely a safely thing. I'm concerned that it could happen again. Whilst I was not seriously injured, I am still in a lot of pain.
  4. You may get more responses if you start a new thread of your own. At 11, there would be certain things that she would be expected to be able do herself in terms of self care, unless she has other disabilities which means she requires help.
  5. Not now. Some areas are universal credit only, which means if you report a change, you'll be moved over. And some people are finding they're now worse off.
  6. Depending on your area, you may be switched to universal credit if you do report a change.
  7. They did claim some time ago that they put something on the system stating I needed my letters in large print. Apparently, someone put a pop up meaning it was impossible to ignore. Sounds like someone's removed this... I've emailed them to ask why I have to request this every single year. It's not as if I'm going to suddenly regain my sight in a few years or so.
  8. I have to request my preferred format each year apparently. Anyone know if this is right? No other company has told me to do this.
  9. You would only be able to make minimum payments on your loan. Unless it's reached court. In regards to holiday - as I understand it, a small holiday, such as a weekend to France would be ok. But they'd consider a few weeks in Cuba deprivation.
  10. I was running in the snow at the weekend. (some events were cancelled for this reason) It was interesting...
  11. Oh what a surprise - they've sent me a letter in a format I can't read...
  12. I know it's not mentioned in the article; but I wonder how much of this "fraud" is because some people are now being switched to universal credit? You can get free prescriptions under UC; but there's no box to tick to say if you're on it.
  13. Yes, the criteria is different. I went from £77 a week to £113. The award letter with the points explains how.
