How To Improve Accessibility in Active Travel

The pace of change in some of our towns and cities has been designed to prevent a car-based recovery from COVID-19, but it hasn't all been positive. As Councils moved quickly to make changes under national government guidance, many of them neglected the basics of engagement and impact assessments. On this subject, we talk to Isabelle Clement, director of Wheels for Wellbeing, a charity that helps everyone enjoy cycling regardless of disability, health or age.


Laura's interview with Isabelle explores the importance of cycling for all and some of the barriers society puts in the way that prevents access for many disabled people.
