About Us

Renfrewshire Access Panel is a small charity based in Renfrewshire dealing with accessibility. Originally we started with access to the built and natural environment and access to services although we are now delighted to be at the forefront of promoting access across its widest remit and endeavours to be fully inclusive in its approach. This means working across the private, public and third sector to remove physical and attitudinal barriers to equality, and to promote all aspects of independent living within the Renfrewshire community.

Stephen Cruickshank – Chairperson

Stephen CruickshankI developed my disability later in life. I joined the local access group in the Disability Resource Centre and very quickly found a very keen interest in everything to do with accessibility and equality. I joined Renfrewshire Access Panel in 2011 and very quickly became chairperson for the panel and since then we have went from strength to strength.
