People who use wheelchairs – Did you know?

We have a new Ability Sheet for the month of February and it is on People who use wheelchairs.  Feel free to print the PDF (Portable Document Format) version and post it somewhere that your staff can read, and have an electronic copy available upon request.

People who use wheelchairs

What helps me in the workplace?

One thing I want people to know:

“As a wheelchair user I experience discrimination every day, when I’m not able to access public spaces like shops and offices, use transportation, eat at restaurants or use services like hair salons. But in most cases, a few small modifications are all that is necessary for people like me to gain access and participate fully in society. When people make these small changes, the result is a big difference in my quality of life.”  John
