Melanie was reassessed for Disability Living Allowance and turned down. She needs assistance to get in and out of the bath and with cooking, and uses a wheelchair for distances over 50 metres. Now that she has lost DLA, she has also lost her car. She says, “My car gave me a bit of independence. I regarded my car as my legs. I’ll be housebound without it. Others will have to do everything for me.”
