The Access Committee for Birmingham started life in 1981 undertaking surveys of buildings in Birmingham City Centre to assess their suitability for use by disabled people, and to promoteĀ  improvements to the physical access of city buildings. In 1992 the organisation was granted status as a Registered Charity. It is responsible for the operation of Birmingham Shopmobility, which it has undertaken since 1999. The membership of the committee includes disabled people representing experience of a number of different conditions and business skills, together with representatives of key city council sections such as Highways and Planning. If you think that you can bring your skills and business knowledge, together with an appreciation for the barriers that society creates, to the committee to support their work to create a barrier free city then please get in touch.
