The Strikes: How Are Disabled People Affected?

November 30, 2011

It’s 30th November, readers. That means one thing in the UK. Anyone who is anyone in our public sector is on strike. Doctors, teachers, public transport workers… the list is endless.

Earlier this week, there were reports that this means operations have been cancelled. This got me thinking- disabled people, how have the strikes affected you today?

Are your children off school? Has your carer/PA not been able to get into work? Have you had a medical procedure or appointment cancelled? Or have you had to cancel one because of a lack of public transport?

Parents- how have the strikes affected your disabled child today?

Readers, please share your stories in the comments. I’ll be reading them with interest. If there’s enough reaction I might turn them into a post of their own…
