Remploy has looked after the working abilities of our disabled since the war, but now it seems money is more important. All these people want is a chance to earn their own money and to be usefull to society. close these factories and a lot will end up on the dole or special payment scheme.

Please do all you can to support the unions in keeping these factories open.

Have to say that I was amazed that the certain building company kept my husband on for 10 months - very tolerant.A statistic for the incapacity benefit/job centre offices. As I am left alone to help my husband to rehabilitate ie the blasted experts can be negative enough to tell him that he will probably never walk again but not to tell him that his brain cells can't cope with the job of a building estimator I've come to the conclusion that it will be a good thing if I lose my driving licence and there will be no temptation to go for interviews and satisfy these egos. Do you think Remploy could get us back to work?
Pom is up for anything to get out of this morbid domestic scene.

Good morning Pom, yours may well be a situation that Remploy could address. they needed managers as well as workers. Some are physicaly disabled, others mentaly. Now these workers will be forced into the mainstream workplace and if they cannot cope will end up who knows where? very sad way to treat people.

Good Morning Dave. Too true. I'm doing a study on self worth at the moment and I wonder sometimes if experts and people in authority really have their fingers on the button. No wonder there is so much dispair about.
On a cheerful note. Did I hear on Midlands today that the factories will not be closing. Thanks for the Remploy info.
Pom is going to kill that dog!

Hi Pom, the web site still shows that they will close.
It is like when they closed most of the schools for disabled children in Nottingham and put the kids in mainstream, a few could cope but a lot in my opinion suffered through it.

I heard that it is only the factories that are making a loss that will be closing?

I've decided not believe what I'm hearing from the News reports. Oh dear! Don't believe the newspapers either.
Pom pretty much a non believer.

Yes LC500, so that is 32 out of 84 closing. They were not meant to be totaly profitable, but to help the disabled have a usefull and meaningful life.
