Focus Group attendees needed - 29th March 2018

Disability Rights UK, working in partnership with a major transport provider, is recruiting disabled people who live near the South Western Railways route to take part in a focus group that will feed into the development and ongoing improvement of one of the southern England’s most used rail networks.

The focus group sessions will take place on 29th March between 2pm - 5pm at the Double Tree Hilton, Victoria Way, Woking, GU21 8...EW. This is an important opportunity to contribute to the look and feel of a service from an accessibility and disability equality basis.

We are looking for a cross section of people and with a range of disabilities and long term health conditions - however the size of the group is limited - we aim to come back to participants with confirmation of their place by 18th March 2018.

If you would like to apply to attend please complete this form and email it to

Unfortunately we are not able pay travel expenses - but each attendee will be rewarded with a £40 Marks and Spencer’s voucher upon completion of the focus group.
