I was informed by letter today that my dla appeal had been refused. One of their reasons was because my husband and I have been granted full responsibility for our two grandchildren ( we either took them or they were going to be adopted ) aged 6 &8 my health must be ok because if I was as disabled as I made out social services wouldn't have allowed us to keep them, even though I have letters from social services stating that I have very limited mobility, that over time my condition had got worse and that I had substantial difficulty using my hands.. I think using this excuse for refusing the dla appeal is not right and is discriminatory to people who have young children. I know of a few women who get dla and keep knocking out child after child, how are they assessed worthy for this benefit? Does anyone have any opinions on this?
Best wishes to all....nannyjenno
