Accessible Transport Solutions - Survey

Sep
12

Dundee Voluntary Action are currently working in partnership with Dundee Health and Social Care Partnership to see if accessible transport solutions can be created to help people to get out and do what they want to do.  It is acknowledged that there is a gap in transport for people who do not drive and are not able to access public transport.

We are interested mainly in the elderly, disabled, frail and vulnerable in order to reduce isolation for the people who can't get out.  We would like to develop new transport options and so want to know transport wise, What stops you getting out?

Please see attached copy of the FREEPOST ‘What stops you getting out?’ consultation postcard and Info Sheet for information.

This consultation is now live and will close on 30th September.  We have hard copies of the consultation postcards and an online survey which can be found at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/AccessibleTransport.  Responses entitled ‘Your Say’ can also be emailed to us at dva@dva.scot.  We will also be carrying out a number of drop in and door knocking exercises across the city throughout September.

We are also holding two focus group sessions should anyone prefer to discuss this in person on Thursday 14th September at 2pm and Friday 22nd September at 2pm in DVA.  Places are limited, so do need to be booked.  I can provide transport if necessary.

Are you able to help distribute the freepost postcards around your networks?  If so, please advise how many of the postcards you will require and we will either arrange to get these to you or they can be collected from Number Ten.

We would also be grateful if you could please share details of this consultation on any social media pages you may have.
