Access refusals - ask your MP to act

New figures show that three-quarters of guide dog owners (76%) have been illegally turned away by businesses and services, such as taxis, restaurants, shops and cafes, with taxis being a particular problem area. The UK Government has agreed taxi and minicab drivers should have disability awareness training, but has not made any firm plans for this. As part of its 'Access all areas' campaign, Guide Dogs is asking people to write to their Member of Parliament to demand a firm commitment to an implementation date.

You can find out more and write to your MP via the Guide Dogs website.
