Disabled woman risks losing home after mobility allowance is stopped

 

A DISABLED woman is at risk of “losing everything” after having her mobility allowance withdrawn, despite her condition worsening.

Gemma Goode, aged 24, from Duston, Northampton, said she felt let down by her Government following the decision to cancel her benefit, which supplies her with a rental car, after receiving it for seven years.

Miss Goode, an administrator for a firm in Moulton Park, was born with most of her fingers and toes missing, and walks with great difficulty.

She relied on her car to get to work, as well as carry out basic tasks like shopping, but now faces sacrificing her job.
