What is Disabled Motoring UK?
Disabled Motoring UK (DMUK) is a campaigning charity for disabled drivers, passengers and Blue Badge holders.
What does DMUK do?
The charity lobbies government & businesses across the UK in order to improve parking, refuelling and access provision for disabled people, so that they can better access the goods and services that they need.
Disabled Motoring UK is not just an organisation for drivers, they also campaign for and support passengers, scooter and wheelchair users, families and carers, representing their interests at both local and national levels and engage with government and industry to ensure that the voice of disabled people is heard. Disabled Motoring UK is the only UK charity that campaigns on behalf of disabled motorists in this way.
What campaigns are currently running?
One of the campaigns currently running is the Baywatch campaign. Baywatch encourages supermarkets to police their disabled bays in order to cut down on people using the spaces who do not have disability.
The charity has campaigns running to highlight the issues of pavement parking, assistance provision for disabled drivers at fuel stations and making more car parks accessible for people with disabilities.
Recent campaign successes include changing local authority discriminatory parking charges and improving the Blue Badge scheme.
