Make those aged 65+ eligible to a mobility element for disability benefits
With age comes SIGNIFICANT functional mobility issues for many. Allow those aged 65+ with mobility issues access to a mobility component of disability benefits (Personal Independence Payment and Attendance Allowance).
With old age comes mobility functional difficulties for many elderly. This curtails and removes their independence, which brings undue financial pressure on Social care. With financial help via a mobility component would help remove the strain.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
