Circular No. NP/073/19
TO: THE SECRETARY
ALL BRANCHES AND REGIONAL COUNCILS
ACCESSIBILITY OF THE UNION FOR DISABLED MEMBERS
You will recall that branches and regions were surveyed regarding the accessibility of the properties in which we hold our meetings. Whilst this is essential information, this only considers physical properties and the Disabled Members’ Advisory Committee have requested that the union asks the broader question of how accessible it is in terms of its services to its membership.
Therefore the union is carrying out a survey of all its members to ask what we can do to remove any barriers to our services. Do note a member does not have to identify as disabled to respond to this survey. The survey can be accessed via this link: http://tinyurl.com/y3qgchdq
Please do remember, all branches and regions must consider the needs of their disabled members when arranging meetings.
Should you have any queries please contact our Equal Opportunities Officer, Jess Webb, on firstname.lastname@example.org or t:020 7529 8821.
