Many blind people are being cheated by not being allowed to claim the same level of benefit as wheelchair users.
A group of local campaigners is travelling to the Houses of Parliament to lobby our MP John McDonnell about this issue on October 15.
It is almost unbelievable that the Government can say they under-stand the force of our argument and are sympathetic to our aims, yet not be able to commit to making a change to the Disability Living Allowance system a this time.
It is not even that the Government can't find a way to make the change, they have.
I know that some blind people, who can't drive and in many cases find it impossible to use public transport, are missing vital hospital appointments and job opportunities because the benefit they receive doesn't cover the cost of taxis.
On a day to day basis, not being able to get to out independently stops many blind people from doing basic things like getting their own shopping, meeting up with friends, joining local clubs.
This has a massive impact on the quality of people's lives.
I support the Royal National Institute for the Blind's campaign.
