Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here.
Theresa May has defended her changes to the Tory social care policy, as critics called it a “manifesto meltdown”.
The PM told the BBC “nothing has changed” and said rival parties had been “trying to scare” elderly people.
It came after she said earlier that there would be a cap on how much people paid for care – a change from the original policy which included no cap.
She did not say what level the cap would be set at but said it would be in a post-election consultation.
• Around 10.7 million people watch the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing
• There are 11.2 million disabled people in the UK (that’s 1 in 5 of us)
• Wheelchair Latin and Ballroom dance is recognised by the International Paralympic Committee and disabled and non-disabled couples compete together around the world.
Why is it so hard for disabled people to find opportunities to participate in Ballroom dance?
This is about to change with the launch on new inclusive dance classes by Step Change Studios – London’s first ever dedicated inclusive Latin and Ballroom dance company. The classes are for all ages, abilities and needs and will provide an inclusive space in the beautiful main hall of The Abbey Centre in the heart of London for disabled and non-disabled people to dance together. There will also be some lovely opportunities for participants who would like to perform, to show-off what they’ve learned.
Emily Skerrett, 33 from Cornwall and talented disabled horse rider, has recently competed for England and won several Para National Dressage qualifiers thanks to her new horse Ella and folding TGA Maximo mobility scooter.
Despite living with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and total wrist fusion, Emily has ridden since the age of 4 and now competes and trains horses six days a week. She runs two successful businesses and is the proud mother of two boys aged six and four. Her rare inherited condition means she has a variety of mobility challenges and hence needs assistance to walk.
The benefits and fun of cycling for people with disabilities were highlighted at Kingsway Sports Centre in Rochdale this weekend with the ‘Ride Rochdale’ accessible cycling day.
The event was busy all day and everyone got the opportunity to get on a bike, with three wheelers, bikes that accommodate wheelchair users, arm powered bikes and tandems available. Family and friends came along too, accompanying the rides on two wheels.
After getting used to the bikes inside the sports hall, riders ventured out into the sunshine for a series of laps around the racetrack!
Disabled people going to Morriston Hospital can now find their way around it before they have even set off from home.
The hospital has become the first in Wales to sign up to an online guide which tells people everything from how far the car park is from the main entrance to where the lifts and disabled toilets can be found.
Working in partnership with DisabledGo, ABMU now aims to extend the access guides to cover all its hospitals as well as community sites.
DisabledGo provides free, detailed information about the accessibility of different venues around the country.
