DONCASTER Central MP Rosie Winterton met disabled people from across the borough at a meeting organised by RADAR, the UK’s largest disability campaigning organisation.

The event was held at the South Yorkshire Centre for Inclusive Living in Doncaster Road, Kirk Sandall, which advises disabled people on individual budgets and how to apply for disability benefits.

RADAR, the Royal Association for Disability Rights, is co-ordinating the national ‘dialogue on disability’ which continues until the end of June.

It allows disabled people from across the country to meet their MPs to discuss local and national issues.  

Rosie said: “It is vital MPs hear directly from disabled people about the issues that affect them.

“Charities such as SYCIL are important to this process, not only because of the services it provides, but because it gives disabled people the opportunity to voice their opinions and to ensure they receive a more responsive and personalised service.”
