Training Staff from the Wales Mobility Driving and Assessment Service

We are pleased to have trained staff at the Wales Mobility Driving and Assessment Service in Rookwood Hospital Cardiff.  The service is a registered charity and receives a grant from the Welsh Assembly, this funding meets the Services core running costs; therefore all capital related costs are generated from fees charged for the provision of services.

Eleven staff members were trained our training course, we will upload feedback soon when we refresh our training section of our website.

Staff members were very intune to the potential challenges faced by those using their service who had a disability.  As a group they were excellently informed, working towards the Social Model of disability to empower people with disabilities.

We were lucky enough to get a sneak peak at the simulator that is used to assess people with disabilities who want to drive.

Accessible Wales would like to thank those who attended the course for their involvement and we look forward to working with them in the future on projects through Accessible News .
