December 3rd is International Day of Persons with Disabilities

International Day of Persons with Disabilities falls on the 3rd of December each year, with the aim of promoting empowerment, and helping to create real opportunities for people with disabilities. This enhances their own capacities and supports them in setting their own priorities.
There are an estimated one billion people living with disabilities worldwide and they face many barriers to inclusion in many key aspects of society. As a result, people with disabilities do not enjoy access to society on an equal basis with others, which includes areas of transportation, employment, and education as well as social and political participation.
The right to participate in public life is essential to create stable democracies, active citizenship and reduce inequalities in society.
Various initiatives are bringing disabled people to the forefront, from involvement in Paralympics and other sporting events. The Paralympic Games are a major international multi-sport event for athletes with physical disabilities or intellectual impairments.
Portable Offices has been involved in several contracts to improve the lives of people living with physical and mental challenges. Gaddesden Place RDA Centre is a dedicated Riding for the Disabled Association centre which provides children and adults with special needs and disabilities the opportunity to ride and have fun.
Riding can help people develop muscle tone and co-ordination and can give them enormous enjoyment and independence.
As one rider said: “I look up to people when I am in a wheelchair, they look up to me when I ride.”
When Gaddesden looked to incorporate a cabin as an administration office for the centre they found Portable Offices on their internet search.
Karen Gosen of Gaddesden Place explains why they would recommend Portable Offices. She said: “The expertise and knowledge of personnel, the efficient process and good communication from all involved exceeded our expectations.
Overall it was a very positive experience with great customer service and personal advice.”
Mencap in Leeds is a well-known provider of services and activities geared to improving the lives and opportunities of children and adults with learning disabilities.
The organisation hired a unit from Portable Offices to provide additional office accommodation as an interim measure before they move into new premises.
Administrator, Lucy Lamb, oversaw the project.  She said: “As a charity we operate to a strict budget, so I undertook a price comparison exercise across the portable building sector before we placed our order and Portable Offices was the most cost-efficient.  It all went smoothly from the outset and everything arrived when they said it would.”
 The Portable Offices’ team is on hand to service companies’ and organisations’ accommodation needs and aims to provide a speedy, professional, cost-effective, turnkey service.
