MAAF Information Officer Report 2016

 We are pleased to have continued with a programme of information sessions and leaflet provision at Nottingham City Limb Centre, Sheffield DSC,  Kings Mill Hospital Mansfield  and Chesterfield & North Derbyshire Royal Hospital

We have also attended the User Group meetings at  Nottingham City and Sheffield DSC

Queens Medical and Nottingham city hospitals  together with the Mobility and Specialised Rehabilitation Centre  have passed our information cards to patients and families, from this we have seen a marked increase in telephone calls and requests for our information packs.

  • During the year we have  updated our information packs, the information provided includes
  •   Radar keys that provides disabled people access to toilets within the   National Radar key scheme.
  • Information on accessible holidays in this country and abroad for that most important break.
  • Where to get a Blue Parking Badge, this badge provides information to the many accessible parking places
  • Information on Aids and Adaptations
  • Benefit information
  • Attendance allowance,
  • Personnel independence payment
  • Housing and Council Tax benefit

A call to our information services will give you further knowledge of the  support and information we offer, if you wish we will mail one of our  packs.

We would like to thank all the members of Maaf the staff at the DSC mobility centres and hospitals for their encouragement and support with meetings and events throughout the past year.
