New Project

 

The Wheelchair Friendly Project

This is a great project and is all about raising awareness of people in wheelchairs. The concept is to display a sticker on the front door/entrances of shops and buildings so that people can straight away know if they are able to 100% access and manoeuvre through the premises. For more information or to become part of the project please contact: wheelchairfriendlyproject@gmail.com or click here for further details.
