Last week I spoke at the first Roundtable meeting of Scope's Extra Costs Commission. The topic was 'Empowering disabled people as consumers' and we had a very interesting discussion about what costs more and why and what can be done.
Too often disabled people are left out of the development of the assistive technology, inclusive design and innovation which can improve our lives. Here at the GDI Hub we want to change that by putting disabled people at the heart of what we do.
I bought a Road King mobility scooter from Pro Rider’s online store. It’s an 8 MPH, Class 3 vehicle with an 1100W motor, which basically means it’s the nuts. It cost £949, which I’m miffed about because had I bought it last week the price was £899.
