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.

Helensburgh & Lomond Access Panel

Disability Equality Scotland is looking for individuals to join the new Access Panel for Helensburgh & Lomond, 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 contact alistair@disabilityequality.scot or ring 0141 370 0968 for information on how to get involved.
