Paul is a wheelchair user who has been told he will have to pay £13 per week for the small spare room he uses to store medical equipment and a hoist that lifts him from his wheelchair. He says, “When I was told I would have to pay for the room, I felt like I was being penalised for being disabled. I have fought the council and won, but the stress has taken its toll on my health. It makes me angry, because I know there are a lot of other disabled people who would have just accepted what they were being told by the council.”
