They are a volunteer group who have an interest in issues of access to public sites and amenities for everyone in Orkney. The group aims to raise awareness of access issues and have a positive influence through advising and lobbying on behalf of the public.
Some issues relate to disability, seen and unseen, but there are no rules about whom the issue affects. If there is an access problem then Access Panel Orkney would like to help resolve it.
Access Panel Orkney is looking for members to bring their ideas and experiences to the group to affect these changes for the greatest benefit.
They have meetings and training regularly and will be looking at different issues each time. If you are unable to come to meetings there is no reason you cannot still be involved. Members are contacted through various means depending on their needs and can contribute in whatever way suits them.
