A disabled man from Carlisle is backing a national campaign calling on local businesses to offer more practical support for disabled shoppers, following the results of a report published today.
30-year-old David Gale is part of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign Trailblazers.
He and others in the group took part in a study 'Short-changed', sharing their experiences of using their local high street for the group’s study.
Launched today, the study has shown that many young disabled people are struggling to access shops, cafés and restaurants, with some shoppers even saying they felt ‘invisible’ after being ignored by staff who instead address their companions or carers.
