Now more than ever people must be able to maintain positive mental and physical health by keeping active and connecting regularly with friends and family. However, we have heard from people in Oldham that this can be hard for people who use a wheelchair to get about and sometimes lack of wheelchair access or appropriate or affordable transport can impact on people mental and physical wellbeing.
Therefore, Healthwatch Oldham has teamed up with the Oldham Safeguarding Adults Board to find out how easy it is for wheelchair users in Oldham to access social groups, physical activities and local services. Please complete the survey which can be done online or give us a call and we can send out a paper version or complete over the phone. We will also be running focus groups (virtual) so if you would like to attend one of those please email your interest at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are also keen to contact any Oldham groups who would be happy for us to come and talk to members to hear about people’s experiences and help us change things for the better in Oldham.
The closing date for this survey is 10 February 2021.
