Access Panels are groups of volunteers who work to improve access and inclusion for disabled people in their local community. Achieved by raising awareness and helping to change attitudes among the general public about the need for inclusive access. Joining your local Access Panel is easy and a great way to improve accessibility in your community. You can learn new skills, help with promotional campaigns or give support at events, help with research and publicity. Give the time and commitment with which you feel comfortable and help to make a difference in your community. Volunteers can be disabled people, those who represent disability organisations, or others with an interest in accessibility, or have experience they can bring to the group, which increases its capacity to work effectively. Have fun, meet new people, learn new skills and raise awareness of the issues facing people of all disabilities in their everyday lives.
The panel will provide initial training for volunteering and there are many training opportunities made available through the Access Panel and Disability Equality Scotland.
