Access All Areas: Transport - Community Consultation Survey
Updated: May 15, 2020
Have your say to help improve accessibility and inclusive practice for people with disabilities interacting with transport services in the ACT: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NYZNY72
The Project: Access All Areas is a community consultation and education project designed to improve accessibility for people with disability, and to promote inclusive practice in transport services in the ACT. Rebus Theatre will develop experiential workplace training programs based on stories shared with us via community consultation about where things can go wrong when people with disability try to access these services. Please note that transport services are not limited to government/public transport but may include community transport, taxis, Uber and other ride-share services, private coaches and buses and other private transportation companies such as limousine services. We are also interested in accessibility of public services that have an effect on walking, cycling and driving such as bike paths and racks, parking etc.
How you can help: To make this a success we need to hear real life stories from people with disability, or their carers, about times that you have accessed or interacted with these services.We want to hear of any barriers you faced such as: · physical barriers - like steps, accessibility; · attitudes of employees of an organisation or service; · processes such as ways of contacting an organisation or service; · timetabling.
We are also interested in hearing stories of times when transport services got things right for you.
Once developed, each training program will be delivered at workplaces or conferences relating to the relevant service across Canberra. During the training the participants are invited to practice inclusive behaviour in real time, and work together to find solutions to the barriers presented. Confidentiality: These stories will only be read by staff of Rebus Theatre, and used for inspiration in the development of the training. No identifying details will be used in the training, and the text you provide will be treated as confidential and will never be made public in any way. NB: We are only seeking stories from people with disability in Australia accessing services in Australia. If you have questions at any time about the survey or the procedures, you may contact Ben Drysdale at 0403 815 784 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. This project is funded by the Australian Federal Government National Disability Insurance Agency's Information, Linkages and Capacity Building program. Thank you very much for your time and support.
