    Fears are rising for adults with disabilities in Wolverhampton due to the transfer of government funds to council control. person_in_a_wheelchair.jpg

    On the 30th of June a £500m Independent Living Fund will be in the control of local authorities, leaving people fearing how the benefit allowance for disabled adults will be affected, reports the Express and Star.

    Over 300 recipients across the city rely on the funding to help them live independently in their own homes. Adults with disabilities have said they’re left in limbo after council bosses have refused to divulge information.
