Why are there no wheelchair accessible activities to do in my area?
I’m soon to become fully wheelchair bound and I’ve been looking online and contacting organisations and groups to look for something, anything, to do in my area. I’m looking for arts, crafts or even just sit and have a coffee or tea with other wheelchair users to see if they have any ideas. I rang one organisation who I knew did drop on sessions to see if they might be able to offer advice or point me in the right direction but they have said there drop in sessions no longer do as their funding has been slashed. They don’t even offer their coffee mornings because of this. This organisation offers so much for disabled people in the community and they have said they get so many people like myself looking for things. To find their funding has been slashed is so sad as their facilities are a lifeline for the disabled community. It’s very sad. Do other people finding this problem in their area? Does anyone have any ideas of organisation or groups I could contact for information?
