I have a car on the motobility scheme, I also use direct payments for taxis as my dad works during the day. as I have mental health, as well as cerebral palsy, it is vital I get out during the day, my mum is my main carer, and is 71years old, and has health issues of her own, I use taxis to get out during the day to go to the gym, with helps with my mental health, and gives my mum a break. Social services are trying to stop me using direct payment for taxis, on the grounds that I have a motobility car, I have been using them for eight years, for taxis, I believe that they can use their discretion and allow me to use the direct payment for transport, am I correct in thinking this?.
