DUDLEY disability charity Access in Dudley is seeking new members to help the organisation continue its work campaigning on behalf of people with disabilities.

The charity has been working to improve the lives of people in Dudley with a disability for 20 years.

Leader Tina Boothroyd has led campaigns to help people with disabilities access buildings, transport and services across the borough and beyond.

She said: "For over two decades we have fought for a better deal for those with disabilities in our borough but our membership has waned over the past few years and we're now making a public appeal for anyone with an interest in those with disabilities to come and join us.

“Our meetings are informal, refreshments are usually provided and no topic is off the table. Examples of our work are as wide as campaigning to get obstructions removed to getting a disability pod installed in one of our leisure centres.

“You don't have to have a disability to be a member, just simply a desire to make our bit of the world a better place to live in for those with disability.”

The group meets once per month and has an audience with Dudley Council every quarter to discuss policies affecting the disabled and give advice on possible improvements to services.
