About the community:
Newport Access Group (NAG) is a Newport-based group who volunteer their time to address accessibility issues for those with disabilities in the local community. They meet once a month at the local YMCA to discuss access issues with representatives from various departments of the local council and between the members, who highlight access problems they have encountered.
What they plan to do with the grant:
The group currently have no internet presence, and don't have the skills to create their own website. Through Media Trust training and mentoring they will be supported to create an accessible website that will enable people in Newport to find out about what the group does and report their own access problems quickly and easily.
What they hope to achieve with the project:
They hope that having their own website will increase local awareness about accessibility in the city and encourage new members to join the group and report their access issues.
