Harry Trusted, Eliot Woolf & Ben Bradley in Wheelchair Awareness Day
Three Outer Temple Barristers were invited to take part in a wheelchair awareness day, organised by Bolt Burdon Kemp Solicitors, with the able assistance of the Back-Up Trust and the Wheelchair Rugby Experience.
Harry Trusted, Eliot Woolf and Ben Bradley spent the morning learning essential wheelchair skills with the Back-Up Trust. They were then sent off into the wilds of Islington in said chairs to (amongst other things) board a bus; buy a coffee; undertake a weekly shop; tackle cobbled streets and find a wheelchair accessible beauty salon.
The afternoon was spent playing the brutal sport of wheelchair rugby, run by the inspirational athletes at the Wheelchair Rugby Experience.
All three barristers have emerged relatively unscathed, but better informed and educated about the accessibility challenges than many face on a daily basis.
