Dundee City Council
Forward from Councillor Gregor Murray, Convener of Children and Families Service, Council Spokesperson for Equal Opportunities at Dundee City Council
Dundee City Council’s commitment to tackling inequalities and valuing the diversity of all our citizens provides a strong foundation for a cohesive and confident community.
Whilst we still strive towards breaking down barriers we should also recognise, promote and share the many examples of where good progress has been made. One important area of positive change has been in the design and build of accessible public buildings & services and the increasing awareness of disability good practice, allowing many people with disabilities to enjoy greater freedom and choice over their lives.
Dundee City Council's partnership with DisabledGo, one of Europe's largest disability organisations, enables citizens and visitors to the city who have disability, their families and carers to have real choice over how they want to live their lives and adds value to our vision of Dundee being a cohesive and confident community.
PAMIS (Promoting a More Inclusive Society) was established in 1992 and supports people with profound and multiple learning disabilities. Ten years ago, PAMIS cofounded the Changing Places Consortium and campaign to develop fully accessible toilets in the UK. A Changing Places toilet is larger than a standard accessible toilet and includes equipment such as an adjustable bench, a tracking hoist, peninsular toilet and stoma shelf. PAMIS’ headquarters are based in Dundee at the University of Dundee. Please click on the following ling to see a map of Changing Places in Dundee
