High Court fight for disabled fund
A campaigner who fights for the rights of disabled people is challenging the Government’s decision to scrap the Independent Living Fund (ILF).
Anne Pridmore is one of a group of 10 disabled people taking on the Government in the High Court next month.
Anne, of East Street, Harborough, receives about half of her benefits from the Department for Work and Pensions through the ILF.
The fund works by giving disabled people money which can be used to hire an assistant or extra care to allow them to lead independent lives.
