We want to find out where disabled people go for advice when they experience discrimination or inequality related to their disability or impairment. This could be advice for problems with housing, benefits, social care support, transport or accessing services but could be other issues too.
We’ve been working with the Scottish Just Law Centre to find cases that affect lots of disabled people so that we can try to secure changes to law and policy that will benefit as many disabled people as possible. This is called strategic litigation. We need front line advice providers who work directly with disabled people to come forward with cases they think might be important.
To help us identify who these relevant front line advice providers are, we are doing a survey to find out from disabled people where they go to get advice and about the barriers that might prevent disabled people from accessing advice.
We also want to hear from Disabled People’s Organisations about their experience of providing advice or signposting their members to advice providers.
If you’re a disabled person or a DPO representative we want to hear from you. Please complete our online Easy Read survey.
Alternative versions of the survey can be downloaded and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you require alternative formats or have any questions please contact us on 0131 370 6700 or email@example.com
The survey closes on Tuesday 11 May at 12pm
