Campaigns

The Campaign Group is a spin off from the activities that the Link Up Club organises.
If we consider that an access problem exists we enter into discussion with the management of the venue in question to see if reasonable adjustments can be made.
The group meets every Thursday at the Chester Skills Development Centre and is part of Scope's day service programme.
Participants discuss points of discrimination and access experienced by the Link-Up Club members on their leisure activities or in their every day individual lives within their own community. The members regularly go out on fieldwork in order to offer local businesses an access assessment service based on the Disability Rights Commission's October 2004 criteria.
It is hoped that the offer of this service will help local businesses to comply with the law and to improve access to all disabled people.
Furthermore, it should help to increase disability awareness and assuage any fears with regard to the employment of disabled people.
