Why are disability awareness events important?
Disabilities come in many different shapes and forms and can be life ruining if they aren’t dealt with properly. Both mental and physical disabilities come with their own individual challenges and are different between one person and the next, so it is important for everyone to know about them and the challenges they pose to life as it is possible for literally anyone to have a disability at some point in life as they can be unpredictable. Alphastairlifts provide great care and attention at a time of need covering stairlift Newcastle, Stairlift Sunderland, Stairlift Durham
Why are disability awareness events important?
Disability awareness events, such as Disability Awareness Day which is the world’s largest ‘not for profit’ voluntary led disability exhibition, are held every year to make sure people get a chance to fully take in and understand what it’s like to live with a disability or to be someone who cares for someone with a disability. These kinds of events can give you a lot of information on what it’s like to be disabled, what it’s like to care for the disabled, what the different kinds of disabilities are and to promote that people living with disabilities can lead a normal life as if the disability wasn’t there which many people don’t seem to be able to understand. They also give you the chance to try things such as wheelchair sports so you can see first-hand what it’s like to try and play sport with a disability and see how tough it can be to be wheelchair bound and lead an active life.
In our modern day society, disabilities are looked upon very poorly with many people considering those with disabilities as second class citizens but this is illegal and unfair. Those living with disabilities have every right that anybody else has and these events are here to make that well known. It’s about time that the world saw those with disabilities the way that they should and to treat them with the respect that they deserve. To find out more, look online for disability awareness events in your local area and head down to them if you get a chance.
Benefits of Stairlifts for Carers
It isn’t just disabled people who can be challenged and affected by a disability, but it can also affect the people who care for them. The term ‘carer’ applies to any person or persons who care for others, disabled or not, on an unpaid basis as opposed to home nurses and care workers who do this on a paid basis. There are 6.5 million carers in the UK and if you are one of these, you may be entitled to receive support such as help with caring, home adaptations and equipment, they can even offer short breaks from caring to you. Alphastairlifts provide impartial advice in Stairlift Newcastle, Stairlift Sunderland, Stairlift Durham, Stairlift Middlesborough.
A carers allowance is a grant for people who regularly spend 35 hours a week caring for someone with a disability who is in receipt of a Disability Living Allowance, Attendance Allowance or Constant Allowance. The conditions for this is that the carer must not be in full time education or earning above a certain amount.
To qualify for receipt of a Carer’s allowance, you must be age 16 or older, look after someone for at least 35 hours per week, the person being looked after must receive a qualifying disability benefit, you must not earn over £102 per week, a resident of the UK when you claim the allowance and you must not be a full time student. This is defined as supervised studying for 21 hours or more per week. The allowance itself is paid at a standard rate, currently set at £61.35 per week and extra benefits can be available dependent on living situations.
There is a lot of practical advice as well as financial, legal and rights information for carers available by visiting the NHS website or by calling the Carers Direct helpline on 0300 123 1053. For more information about Carer’s Allowance or to make an application, please don’t hesitate to visit the Carer’s Trust website.

Living with Disabilities
Living with disabilities can be a very hard task to do but luckily in our modern day society, it is becoming increasingly easier with mobility aids. Disabled people are often talked about as though they are all in the same group, but every disabled person faces different challenges and conditions based on their separate disabilities. The Equality Act 2012 defines a disabled person as anyone who has a physical or mental impairment that has a substantial and long term adverse effect on his or her ability to carry out day to day activities. These can include; limb loss, multiple sclerosis, heart disease, Down’s syndrome, learning difficulties and any mental health problem such as depression or anxiety.
Older people are more likely to develop a disability and most disabled people worldwide are adults. Greater than 11 million people in the UK are disabled and approximately 6% of these are children. More people are living with a disability now than in the past because of improved medical treatment enabling people to better manage disabilities and health problems which in effect is making us all live longer. The Equality and Human Rights Commission think that 58% of people over 50 will have a long term health condition by 2020.
Disabilities of any kind can present a vast array of challenges, but this doesn’t mean that life with a disability can’t be fulfilling. For most people, a fulfilling life is having control over their day to day life and being able to decide how they live. More than one million disabled people live alone in the UK and many more lead independent lives with some help. For others, independent life also means being employed and half of the UK’s disabled people are in employment, so disabilities don’t mean the end of your life as you know it.
