Streets For All outdoor survey launch
Many blind and partially sighted (BPS) people are forced into danger by being expected to step into the road to avoid obstacles such as outdoor seating. We want to change this.
With a launch of our outdoor seating campaign, Thomas Pocklington Trust and Sight Loss Councils would like as many people impacted by outdoor seating as possible to complete our short survey.
Whether you are blind or partially sighted, use a mobility aid or wheelchair, have a mobility scooter or a pram or buggy for young children, please complete our survey and share with others.
Streets For All
This survey is part of our Streets For All campaign which aims to make our streets accessible for everyone. This is because we want all blind and partially sighted people to be able to enjoy our nation’s public spaces independently and safely, with confidence and ease.
There are many increasing hazardous obstacles which can prevent BPS people from being able to navigate our streets independently and safely. They also impact on BPS people’s confidence to travel.
These obstacles include:
- street furniture
- shared space schemes
- pavement parking
- rubbish bins
- other hazardous obstacles.
We want to change this.
How we will use your responses
We will use your responses to influence for better guidelines and licences, and work on Local Authority being more consistent throughout the UK.
