Access

 

DAD brings disabled people together to improve access for disabled people by addressing barriers created by both the physical and attitudinal environment.

DAD promotes good practice around access issues, and works with planners and providers to improve access to services.  DAD works with organisations from the planning stage through to delivery to ensure their services are accessible.

DAD also advises public bodies how to discharge the duties imposed on them by the Equality Act

Some examples of our work include-

  • Looking at planning applications to make sure access to a building / service has been considered
  • Monitoring the frequency and sites of goods on the pavement and A boards, and supporting the Council to enforce regulations to keep pavements clear
  • Supporting the implementation of the Disability Equality Duty

The Access Interest Group brings disabled people together to improve access for disabled people by addressing barriers created by both the physical and attitudinal environment.
