Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here.
Please come and join DisabledGo and Lambeth Council to talk about the Online Accessibility Checker to places across Lambeth.
Lambeth’s Accessibility Checker has been available since 2016 and since then has been providing compressive access information across the borough. Everything included has been asked for by disabled people, carers, their friends and family so it covers much more than just automatic doors and ramps.
Most important of all, everywhere has been visited and assessed by trained surveyors, so you can get all the facts, knowing someone has actually been there to collect the details.
You are invited to come along to DisabledGo’s Work Experience day in Sheffield on 26th September 2017. The schedule for the day is as follows:
Morning session – there will be an information session in a classroom setting to tell you more about DisabledGo and our work.
Afternoon session – you will go out with a DisabledGo surveyor to visit some venues and collect information about their access.
You will be involved in talking to members of staff at venues about what DisabledGo does, taking measurements and using questionnaire’s to note down the information.
Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust has been working with DisabledGo, a leading provider of accessibility information for disabled people in the UK, to create an online guide for patients, staff and visitors.
Visitors, patients and staff can use this online resource to find out about the access to all of the Trust’s buildings at the hospitals. You can find out where a department is located in relation to the main entrance, where car parking spaces are located, whether there are lifts to access other floors, whether a hearing loop is fitted at reception, in-depth information about accessible toilets and much more.
The mother of a man with autism who was restrained by as many as nine members of staff for 11 hours at a private hospital in Birmingham has said her son has been left “traumatised”.
Jill Nasralla told the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire she had not received an apology after the incident involving her son Adam, then 20, at Wast Hills.
He has now been given an out-of-court settlement by the hospital and police.
The hospital said patient welfare was its “number one priority”.
Ms Nasralla said her son’s behaviour had “deteriorated” since he was moved to the hospital at the age of 19, and that the hospital had removed her son’s autism diagnosis without her knowledge.
Depersonalisation disorder, sometimes known as DPD, leaves sufferers feeling like they’re not part of the world they live in.
“I feel spaced out a lot of the time. I feel like I’m not really here, like I’m living in a dream,” says Dodie Clark, a 22-year-old musician and vlogger from London.
“I can’t open my eyes wide enough or see things properly.”
The mental health disorder can lead to severe depression as emotions, empathy and wellbeing give way to a detachment and distance from daily life.
