Calling Time - Evidence
Jagdeep Kaur Sehmbi, Birmingham
"When I arrived at the theatre I was told I couldn't go in and see the play because there were only a very limited number of wheelchair spaces available, even though I had booked disabled seats."
"I was very pleased with the services at Birmingham Hippodrome - good accessibility, good options of wheelchair spaces, helpful staff, and spacious accessible toilets."

"There is so much out there for able-bodied people to indulge in, with regards to sport, dance and leisure facilities, yet nothing of the same nature for us. It appears, in my experience, that people seem to think that just because we can't get up, run around and chase a ball, we don't want to. Of course we do! Our bodies may be different but our minds are not!
We are not useless: we can join in and most importantly, we want to. So why not plan new developments, leisure centres, clubs and activities with us in mind as well."
