Benefits of Membership

History has shown that if you wish to create improvements in lifestyle, the best way to succeed is to do it oneself.

Disabled people face problems of access and facilities in all types of buildings. Where the law requires owners to provide practical means of access and facilities, specifically for the use of disabled people, all too often access is denied and facilities are inadequate for the needs of severely handicapped people. This Association has been established to bring disabled people, their families, friends and sympathisers together in one body which, through weight of numbers in terms of membership, can bring pressure to bear on Government, Local Authorities and owners and operators of businesses in buildings, which are open to the public, to persuade them to meet their legal obligations in terms of access and facilities for disabled people. By joining this Association, you will give us the means to bring the appropriate pressure to bear, where the best results can be achieved. Successful lobbying depends on numbers; thus the greater our membership, the greater our lobbying power to enable the disabled.

  • Better hotel bathrooms and toilets
