Sandra speaks about the aims of the Disability Access Panel, of how the group wants to help people find help and easy access when having to travel or visit public buildings and when using public transport. She explains how help is given at the airport in Benbecula and encourages people to go and inform themselves a few days before a flight – if possible.  The airport hands out special leaflets for people in need of help (LOGANAIR and FLYBE).

A longterm aim of the group is also to create more easy accessible outdoor facilities, so that people can enjoy the beauty of the Uists.

The UDAP is situated in Tagsa, East Camp Enterprise Park in Balivanich.

    Reblogged this on Island Voices – Guthan nan Eilean and commented:
    Loriana chalks up another fascinating and informative interview. Disability access doesn’t always get good coverage as an issue at any level. But Sandra brings it home.

  2. You folks over there on the other side of the pond are so fortunate to have Sandi in your midst. You’ve got the best of Alaska working with you on important social issues…but even more important, you have my beloved mother…please take good care of her, she truly is a precious gem. Thane

      Thank you, Thane. I think your mother is wonderful …..

      • Thane Humphrey says:

        Thank you Lorain. I have to agree with you. 😉

        Having a little piece of Alaskan culture right there in your community is a sure fire way of adding some novelty.

        I’m hoping to visit one day, but until then, I enjoy hearing the stories of island life from mom.

        If ever I can do anything to help your endeavors, please let me know.
