Title: Scotland’s Access Panel Network

Access Panels are made up of people of all ages and abilities who share a passion for the issues faced by disabled people. With the help of Disability Equality Scotland as the national umbrella body, Access Panels support their communities to become as accessible as possible, particularly in relation to the built environment, healthcare, employment, education, and transport.

Get Involved! Joining your local Access Panel is easy and a great way to help improve accessibility in your community.  You can learn new skills, help with promotional campaigns or give support at events, help with research and publicity.  Give the time and commitment with which you feel comfortable and help to make a difference in your community.
