Out of Sight, Out of Mind -- Understanding Transport and Mobility Issues for People with Hidden Disabilities
An Accessibility and Inclusion Forum seminar exploring hidden disabilities and the role transport can play to promote accessibility.
“An invisible disability is a disability that cannot be seen, may not require a wheelchair, crutches or a blue badge”. Invisible Disabilities UK
Staff working in the transport industries – as elsewhere – are now routinely trained in meeting the needs of disabled people. However, much of the emphasis remains on those people whose disabilities are apparent – wheelchair users, people with walking difficulty, those who are blind and use a long cane or a guide dog. But, for example, fewer than 8% of disabled people use wheelchairs.
For those people whose disabilities are not apparent, but who may experience chronic pain or anxiety or any one of a wide range of other physical or psychological challenges to their independent mobility, the attitude of transport providers and the level of understanding of their needs is often very poor. And yet for many, being able to use public transport with confidence and dignity is a vital part of recovery or simply of long term daily living.
The seminar will explore the needs of people whose disabilities are “hidden” and will discuss what can and should be done to recognise them more routinely and sensitively. Policies and practice as well as training requirements will be explored.
A draft programme is available here.

The Supply Chain Network has been running since September 2004. It was set up as a networking and learning opportunity for people working within the supply chain in retailers, manufacturers and logistics providers. The group numbers about 50 people, with 20 typically at any one meeting. We meet about every six weeks or so in a pub in central London. Networking normally starts from 6pm onwards with snacks at 6.30pm and the 'formal' presentation from 7pm, with more networking afterwards. We aim to have a mix of 'experts' and presentations from within the group. The environment is very informal. The objective is discussion rather than a formal presenter at the front, with presenters encouraged to bring issues as well as experience.
We sometimes have spare spaces, so if you're interested in joining us, please contact Kirsten Tisdale here - put Supply Chain Network in the comments box.
A light buffet will also be provided.
