'They can't understand how I've been doing my job for all these years'

“When there’s a bit of shade out there, I don’t have to go in. I can stand under it. It’s very good for the body, and if you get over it, then it’s quite good for the mind, too. But if the windows are a bit wet, then I have to go in.”

“They aren’t letting us stay here. They could let us stay here. It would be in the sunshine, the kids could play. But they wouldn’t.”

“My neighbours are just nasty. They don’t like me, and they don’t like the children.”

“I was born here, and it’s my home. I don’t have a clue where I’m going.”

“There’s more people living here now than when I moved in 40 years ago.”

“The first thing they did was take my electronic bins, and it’s the same with the garden hose. Now they’re taking my electric wheelchair, the two swings, and the other good toys.”

“This is my whole life. I need it to get me where I need to go. If I have to carry my electric wheelchair down the stairs, then I can’t do my job properly.”

“There’s one other person with this issue in the village, but nobody’s talking about it.”

The Challenge

“I asked the council why we can’t have a place where I can leave my wheelchair, and I didn’t get a good answer.”
