Independent living and assisted dying

With the government announcing that the Independent Living Fund (ILF) will close in June 2015, Paul Carter and Ian Macrae ask if 20,000 ILF users will be forced into institutions. They ask if a parliamentary vote on the right to die could be the start of a slippery slope for disabled people and discuss football from a disabled fan’s perspective. Paul and Ian are joined by Level Playing Field’s chair Joyce Cook, actor and Ipswich Town fan Jamie Beddard, the artist and ILF user Katherine Araniello and the performer Sophie Partridge who also uses the ILF.
