Summary of the Role
Inclusion Gloucestershire is a growing, dynamic user-led organisation, run by disabled people for disabled people. We are passionate, person-centred, inclusive and have a track record of high-quality delivery. Through our work, many people have told us transport is a big barrier to independence. We would like to make transport more inclusive through this project working with the County Council, bus companies and the University of Gloucestershire to define the barriers and to develop new inclusive solutions.
This will include gathering data by engaging directly with disabled people, researching solutions with partners and utilising technology through the University to produce and roll out a product such as a QR code and app and trial it with disabled people.
To deliver this exciting new partnership project, getting it off the ground, consulting and engaging with disabled people about the barriers that they face and working with partners to develop innovative solutions.
