What we do

We are an independent charity which aims to promote improved access to services and facilities for disabled people and encourage councils, developers and businesses to subscribe to the social model of disability and the principles of inclusive design so that everyone, including disabled people, can enjoy the same facilities equally.

Although we receive generous support from Pembrokeshire County Council, we are an autonomous Group with our own agenda.

Our Plan Monitors look at all planning applications in the county to encourage and advise architects, planners, developers and the Council to produce more inclusive schemes. We have also introduced many initiatives into Pembrokeshire including the beach wheelchairs and the Pembrokeshire Passport.

The Group is often consulted by the Council on policy and is used as a sounding board for issues such as the Disability Equality Scheme and the Single Equality Scheme. We also monitor the council website and publications to ensure that they are accessible to everyone including disabled people.

The Access Officer at the Council is Alan Hunt. If you need advice or information on any matters concerning the Disability Discrimination Act, the Social Model of disability or Inclusive Environments please contact Alan at County Hall, Haverfordwest. His direct line telephone number is 01437 775148 and his e-mail is alan.hunt@pembrokeshire.gov.uk >>
Alan would also welcome your call if you would like to contact or join the Group.
