Turning Point's Director of Learning Disability Services, Adam Penwarden said;

"We are reassured by the fact the Government has listened to those who need support the most and has decided not to remove the mobility component of the Disability Living Allowance.  

"This benefit is integral to the lives of some of the most vulnerable members of our society, allowing them to access and be part of their local community.  The removal of this vital resource would have rendered many of them housebound, robbing them of the chance they would otherwise have to lead fulfilled and independent lives."
