Abstract

As part of the Comprehensive Spending Review announced in October 2010, the Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition announced changes to a range of disability entitlements. One such change included the removal of entitlement to the mobility element of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA) from those living in residential care homes. This report, which is based on interviews with over 50 adults living in residential care homes across Scotland, their families and key workers describes the impact that this change will have.
