Call for an increase in PIP due to Covid-19

Disability Campaigners in Chesterfield have launched a campaign following our members' experiences on public transport (or lack of availability), and the increased costs this means if people travel at all.

People living closer to the centre of our town who are disabled are having to resort to the use of taxis or just stay at home. Because of the bus limit of ten people, buses are generally full when nearer the town centre, and sail past the people at the stops. Clearly, there is little point in having a bus pass if you cannot get on a bus, and then have to pay taxi fares to get to appointments, social distance visiting and shopping.

Disability Campaigners are campaigning for an increase in personal independence payments to offset the increased costs of travel to disabled people.

Disability Campaigners, North Derbyshire
