Lovely article about our Day of Celebration in the Extra. Please note there is a slight inaccuracy as we are here for all families and children under 3 years, not only for those with additional support needs.
East Renfrewshire Disability Action (ERDA) we were launched at the Barriers & Bridges Community Conference event in March 2011, then as now, it is important there is local disability organisation to raise the issues and concerns of disabled people at a local and national level. This has been the case since our beginnings but has become even more so as disabled people are disproportionally negatively impacted by the unfair and unjust Westminster Welfare cuts as well as cuts, increased charges and changes to various local authority services that disabled people use.
These policies and decisions maintain and reinforce the social, physical, attitudinal, cultural and economic barriers that prevent disabled people taking up our rightful role as full and equal citizens.
We are currently campaigning to address the lack of wheelchair accessible taxis in East Renfrewshire.
