DISABILITIES PAGES


Woo wants to help everyone regardless of age, sex, gender or disability.

Below we try to offer information for those with disabilities.

I have spent the majority of my life working alongside a wide range of people who have had various disabilities. On first leaving school I worked with the Deaf as a Audiolgogy Technician,  as a Emergency Medical Technician for the Ambulance services, then as a support worker and later manager of a Day Base for Adults with Learning Disabilities, and finally working with abused children with challenging behaviours, learning disabilities and autistism. 

So I could hardly develop a community website without including a section on Disabilities !

But I want these pages to be for you, so if you have anything to share get in touch!

CANT WAIT CARD

The IBS Network have created a card to show when in shops, offices or buildings without public toilets which can help you gain access to staff toilets.
The card also comes in many languages to use when on holidays abroad.

RADAR KEY

With a Radar Key, you can access public / disabled toilets even when they are closed.

ACCESSIBILITY

In this section I intend to highlight some of the local places that are disability friendly, and fully accessible by wheelchair or other mobility aid, and maybe highlight and shame some that should be but are not to hopefully change things.

POLICE PEGASUS SCHEME

HOW TO CALL WHEN YOU HAVE COMMUNICATION DIFFICULTIES

PEGASUS

If you have communication difficulties, Dyfed-Powys Police can make things easier for you with their Pegasus Scheme.

This innovative scheme makes it easier to contact and communicate with Police quickly and easily by telephone or face to face.

After registration members are issued with a Pegasus Key-Fob and a password.

The caller will only have to say the word 'Pegasus' and give their password to be identified by the officer or call handler's who will have access to that persons information, including details on how best to communicate with that person.

The user is also supplied with a Pegasus Key-Fob to carry, then if they are approached by Police officers or PCSO's and find it difficult to communicate then they just have to show the key-fob and tell the officers their password to enable them to receive help.

Use the button below to email Dyfed-Powys Police, marking your email 'Pegasus Application'

or apply by post to the address below:-
