New Access Panels in Scotland

Disability Equality Scotland is developing a number of new Access Panels in areas across Scotland, and this page will be kept up to date with all the information you will need to join them.

The sign-up forms below will help us learn a little more about you, your experience and interests, and what kind of role you might want to undertake in the group. Application to Access Panel memberships are open to anyone committed to accessibility in the area.

 

Access in Argyll & Bute

Disability Equality Scotland is looking for individuals to join a new Access Panel in Argyll & Bute, to promote inclusive design and accessibility in the area.

For this Panel, we are looking for individuals to take up interim office bearer positions, so if you are interested please let us know below. While the Panel will need to consist of 50%+ disabled people in order to be constituted as a disabled people’s organisation, application to the Panel membership will be open to anyone committed to accessibility in the area.

Please respond to this form by Friday 5 November 2021. After this date, we will be in touch to arrange a meeting putting into place interim office bearers and discuss a plan for the year ahead.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact alistair@disabilityequality.scot or ring 0141 370 0968.
