Barriers to accessibility for those depending on using a wheelchair might not be obvious to the able-bodied observer. A patch of deep gravel left as a temporary measure by maintenance workers might be easily walked over by anyone walking, but that same patch of gravel would bog down a wheelchair.

The same patch can be an issue for baby strollers and carriages; elderly and their walkers or canes; as well as mobility scooters and wheelchairs. Luckily most times such patches are temporary, but there are similar sorts of barriers that pop up from time to time and some aren’t cleared up quickly.

Keep an eye out for barriers to both the able and disabled members of society.

We'll Make CentsWe’ll Make Cents” is an organization that helps support a number of not-for-profit causes which might get overlooked. Why not pop over and give them a visit and check out their current project.

Donations are actually hard to come by for Charities and other not-for-profit organizations. Consider what you might be able to donate. It might be a good time to clean that closet, attic, cellar, shed, or garage! You might have someone else’s next treasured possession. Perhaps you don’t live near Auckland and We’ll Make Cents, but there are people in need everywhere!

Ding-Dong! Nobody Calling! — Wheel Tales of Willow City

Sure Willy! What can I do for you?

Have you ever discovered a note from the postal service, delivery service, or a courier telling you that you weren’t home when they came to deliver something. You know you were home all day… or perhaps there was a ring at the doorbell and nobody there. Consider what it is like when you are mobility impaired or have some other issue that keeps you from flying to the door in a blink of the eye.

Just those who need a home delivery the most end up missing them and having to arrange to pick things up at a post office or depot. Your regular postman or delivery person might understand and know to wait that bit extra. But with deliveries often it isn’t anyone that knows your situation doing the delivery. You sure don’t want to advertise the fact on the front door that you have any sort of disability — to invite stray prowlers in to prey on you.

All it needs is patience on the part of people working to deliver as quick as possible to as many people as possible… sort of a conflict of interest there…

I have noticed that often around construction zones, first allowance is made for cars; next it is made for fit pedestrians; next cyclists; and finally — if at all — for the disabled, people with shopping carts, baby carriages and strollers. Even if space is given it is often soon blocked because it is a convenient space to drop some construction materials off at.
