Sutton Coldfield Disability Action Group (SCDAG) is a newly formed local charity whose aim is to improve the day-to day lives of people with disabilities, their carers and personal assistants. SCDAG is carrying out a survey to gather views on issues affecting people with disabilities which include disabled access and amenities. The Group is keen to explore opportunities to improve access and local opportunities for people with disabilities.
SCDAG is a voluntary organisation and registered charity which was established to work with local organisations and businesses. The aim of the group is to widen and support opportunities and access for those who live with disability within our local communities.
SCDAG’s aim is to be pro-active in helping organisations find solutions to provide and increase the variety and provision for amenities across our local area and to raise awareness and information on issues affecting our disabled community.
The SCDAG Disabled Persons and Carers/Personal Assistants Questionnaire was opened online on July 20th and continues until Friday 9th August. Local disability organisations will circulate the survey; however, all members of the public are invited to get involved by completing the survey online at bit.ly/SCDAGSurvey.
SCDAG are also holding a drop-in session at Sutton Coldfield Library on Wednesday 31st July from 10am to 3pm where people can complete the short survey in person and find out more about SCDAG.
The results of the questionnaire will be analysed by the SCDAG Working Group, and the key findings will provide information to Birmingham City Council, Royal Sutton Coldfield Town Council, Service Providers to develop policy and strategy to support improvements in access and facilities for people with disabilities.
