How do I get a ramp fitted outside my house?
hi my name is sylvia, i am a 46 year old woman who is having several medical problems including mobility problems! i live in a ground floor flat that has certain things to help a disabled person the only problem that i have is that there is no ramp at the front of the building! i have rang the local council about having a ramp put outside to help me be more independent,but they are saying that i dont fit the criteria! i am feeling more&more isolated! i attend a mental health support group once a week which i really enjoy,a few weeks ago we went on a trip to southport and had problems because i used my mobility scooter which i bought so that i could be more independent but it seems to be causing even more issues! i actually got in touch with my local paper and they did a story about the way i was treated! it gave me a boost at the time but it makes me feel so angry! does anyone have any ideas how i can overcome these issues i can walk a little but have recently been diagnosed with osteo arthritis in my spine! i have a p.a to help me around the house and to get me out as i also have mental health problems and anxiety! so the only time i leave my flat i need help and the ramp situation would help me so much! i cant even say that i use the mobility scooter! any advice would be grateful for thanks foor reading.
