The Deeside Access Panel was formed to bring to the attention of people who provide a service to the public, their legal obligations to make reasonable adjustments in accordance with the Disability Discrimination Act 1995. The Panel can help businesses to implement best practice in accordance with the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 by offering informed comment on ways to make their service more user friendly for people with disabilities. Solutions can sometimes be found at next to no cost. See our Equipment Loan Poster and our Wheelchairs for Hire Poster.Deeside Access Panel provides:
