Disability Design Reference Group – Transport for Greater Manchester

Ref DN621896
Expression of Interest closing date 02/09/2022

TfGM is looking to establish a new contract for the provision and management of a Disability Design Reference Group (DDRG). The DDRG covers a number of different types of impairments – including people who use wheelchairs, people with hearing or sight impairments and people with learning difficulties. TfGM asks their views on a range of options when designing transport initiatives. Naturally, there is not always a general consensus – designs that are suited to (for example) someone using a wheelchair may not be the best designs for someone with a visual impairment, and vice versa – consulting the DDRG makes it possible for TfGM to qualitatively assess the different design options in a much more balanced way, and to hear arguments and opinions from many different perspectives.
