The 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.
Access issues take a large number of forms. Consider the following examples:
In short, if you are not able to make a journey to a service and then use that service without serious disruption to yourself then you are encountering access issues. If you are encountering these, or similar problems in your everyday life, please get in touch!
The Glasgow Access Panel also provide access audits and written reports to organisations looking to improve the accessibility of their premises. For more information on this, see ‘What We Do’, or contact us with any questions, or if you would like to arrange an audit.
Prior to lockdown, we held accessible events for local disabled people at the Glasgow Centre for Inclusive Living. As of 2021, we are now holding regular Zoom meetups as a means of keeping in touch with our members, and the wider disabled community of Glasgow. If you would like to join our chats, please get in touch!
