Turned down for the mobility part
I am grateful and relieved that my application for continued disability allowance has been partially successful. However I am concerned that I have been refused any mobility allowance whatsoever and therefore wish to appeal the decision in this area.
Being nervous in my interview and looking at it in entirety I feel that I may not have given sufficient emphasis to the safety aspect of my mobility allowance application. You will see that the geography of the area where I live and that I can not drive determines that to reach the local station I have to walk up a steep hill and then along an unpaved busy road which is also unlit at night. To reach the bus stop or use local shops in the day I have to either use this same road or an uneven footpath with stiles and an unmanned open railway crossing. This makes walking locally dangerous for me and I wish to live as independently as possible and not to have to ask people to give me lifts in their cars which severely restricts where I can go; additionally the availability of this option has declined sharply.
I would be grateful if you would kindly reconsider your decision taking these factors into account.
