Thanks to a donation from the SCOPE Local People Programme, we now have two lightweight, folding, portable ramps available to hire.
These are great for events where there is a single step at the entrance or somewhere within the venue. Having a ramp instead of a step can be helpful for people with buggies, people who use walking frames and people with sight impairments, as well as wheelchair users.
Both our ramps can be transported easily in the boot of a car. One is 2ft long, and the other is 4ft long.
We will be working with SCOPE now to produce some guidance on how to make your activities and events more accessible in all sorts of ways. Watch this space…
