Deadline for major survey fast approaching

The deadline for a major survey aimed at finding out what it is like living with a physical disability in Aberdeenshire is Tuesday, February 9.

The results of the survey will be used to inform future planning and improve communities for disabled people across Aberdeenshire.

This survey has been developed by the Physical Disability Strategic Outcome Group, which includes disabled people and carers as well as representatives from Aberdeenshire Council, Aberdeenshire Health and Social Care Partnership, NHS Grampian and voluntary organisations in Aberdeenshire. This group leads on the direction for planning, development and delivery of services for physically disabled people in Aberdeenshire.

In this wide ranging survey people will be asked about their experiences and views on education, employment opportunities, finance, health and social care, family and social life, leisure and sport, housing, communities and transport.

The survey will also ask about their experiences, in particular if they have been subject to discrimination, harassment or hate crime because of their disability.

Printed copies of the survey are available on request by calling Aberdeenshire Council on 03456 081206.
