Wheelchair accessibility in London transport

Hello all

My name is Raquel, I'm a PhD student at University College London, and would like to understand how wheelchair users navigate the London transport system. I'm currently looking for London-based (or people familiar with London transport) wheelchair users who are willing to be interviewed about their thoughts on the transport network.

I am aware that this research does not work solely on stroke and stroke survivors. However, common consequences of stroke are paralysis, muscle weakness, and a variety of other physical effects that might lead a person to using a wheelchair (short/long-term or even permanently). As my research focuses on interactions between wheelchair users and the transport system, I believe it is still of interest to stroke survivors as I hope that it will result in best-practice advice for transport and network infrastructure!

If you are interested, or know someone who might be interested, in my work or would like to volunteer for my research, please email: raquel.velho.12@ucl.ac.uk

I look forward to hearing from you!
