Cuts to personal independence payments mean up to 500 Motability vehicles are now being removed each week. Have you been affected?
Up to 500 Motability vehicles are now being removed from people each week in the UK due to personal independence payments (PIP) cuts, according to research by Muscular Dystrophy UK. The number of disabled people now affected by the new benefit rules has climbed to 51,000.
The Guardian is continuing a video investigation into the impact of cuts on disabled people and is looking for people to tell their story. As part of this, we’re looking to speak to people who have recently been told they will lose their Motability car, scooter, or wheelchair (and have not already returned their vehicle).
