Glasgow Access Panel - Improving Access For All

Inclusive Public Space project

Glasgow Access Panel would like to invite you to participate in a research project on the accessibility of streets. The project is based at the University of Leeds and aims to raise awareness and understanding of the types of problems faced by disabled and older people, and how these affect their lives.

We are looking for disabled and older people who have had any difficulty with streets in Glasgow, before or since Covid-19. Examples include problems caused by floating bus stops, confusing or dangerous crossings, trip hazards on pavements; shared spaces without clear markings and so on.

You can take part without leaving your home, as all interactions will be by phone or online.

Taking part involves:

•  being interviewed;
•  choosing a street journey to be filmed by a professional photographer (with the option of featuring in it); and
• describing your experiences and their impact on you in the form of a short personal story.

If you are interested in taking part, more information can be found at the link below:
