Election: "Which parties will help the long-term disabled?"
Between now and the general election, we at iPM are offering a new service to our listeners imaginatively titled Election Questions.
The first question we tried to answer was from Jean Buckton
"I am totally blind and in a wheelchair due to osteoarthritis of the spine, I'm 42. My daughter (14) was born with cerebral palsy.
My husband had to give up work 14 years ago to care for us both full time. We rely solely on benefits such as Disability Living Allowance and Income Support.
My question is: which parties will help carers and the long-term disabled the most?"
That's a judgement only you can make Jean, but we can help with information about what the parties say. And what better guide than the BBC's Disability Affairs Specialist Peter White. Listen to his advice
