I understand that due to the virus a lot of places are put under pressure to meet the social distancing criteria but am I wrong to feel angry when I see new procedures not considering or taking into account the needs of disabled people? I’m witnessing Wheelchair areas being taped off, food courts not allowing the use of tables (i was expected to put it on my lap), tills in certain shops are too high up already and I can’t reach the area where I’m meant to slide my money under a gap at the bottom of the shield on the till, and when asked staff to make reasonable adjustments so I can sit in a wheelchair area that was closest to the toilet that they decided to inconveniently close off they say they’re not allowed? I feel like we’re being pushed aside and forgotten about.
