PDSICG – The Physical Disability and Sensory Impairment Consultation Group (PDSICG) is funded by Milton Keynes Council (MKC) specifically as a consultation group on issues for the physically disabled, hearing and visually impaired people of Milton Keynes. It also acts as a critical friend of the Council. The Group has been in existence for over ten years now and comprises 6 physically disabled, wheelchair users, all with different disabilities, two visually impaired people and one profoundly deaf person. The Committee operates with two Co-chairs who lead meetings alternately. The Committee is elected on a yearly basis.
PDSICG have been involved in consultations on improvements at the MK Rail Station, MK Coachway, Marks and Spencer at the Stadium, MK, The MK Central Post Office, The Sensory Services (SARC) contract to name just a few. The Group hopes to undertake an access survey of GP Surgeries in Milton Keynes shortly.
If you feel you have questions or issues you would like PDSICG to take up on your behalf, please get in touch with Kim Burchell at MK CIL. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course, we cannot promise to solve everyone’s problems or issues!
The Group is actively looking to recruit new members, especially, hearing impaired and deaf/blind and young physically disabled and sensory impaired people.
