Our member led #MakeMertonAccessible campaign has been featured in the journal of the influential Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA).
We are featured in an article based on the four videos that our members created for our #MakeMertonAccessible campaign (featured on our website here). The article highlights the safety issues that come out of access barriers like cars parked on pavements forcing wheelchair users into the road.
In the article, our policy & strategy manager Michael Turner points out that safety is a part of the human right to life and that accessibility should be seen as part of is right.
