Glasgow Access PanelThe Glasgow Access Panel (GAP) is a registered charity (charity number SCO36531). Our aim is to improve the accessibility of services, buildings, facilities and information across Glasgow for all disabled people.
What is an Access Issue?Access issues take a large number of forms. Consider the following examples:
- At your building society branch office there is a sign saying that an induction loop is available but no-one knows how to work it.
- A public body advertises that information is available in alternative formats but when you phone them up for an audio version or large print copy they cannot provide you with one.
- You know that there are more accessible buses on your route, but the journey from your house to the bus-stop is nearly impossible due to high pavements and street furniture.
- Although your local cinema is ramped throughout, with low counters and more than one accessible toilet, you cannot open the heavy doors to get into the cinema itself.
