BARBADOS PARALYMPIAN DEBUTS BRITISH HIGH COMMISSION DISABLED ACCESS
Greater access for the disabled and improved facilities for those with disabilities has been a central theme of the extensive refurbishment of the British High Commission building on Lower Collymore Rock.
The improved facilities include better ramps and widening of doorways for wheelchair access as well as larger modernised bathrooms for disabled users. In addition to these improvements the High Commission has undergone a complete internal makeover to improve facilities and the working environment of its staff and to allow for the co-location of the UK Department for International Development (DFID).
To celebrate the completion of the refurbishment project and to mark International Day for Persons with Disabilities, which occurs on 3rd December, Wesley Worrell, wheelchair athlete and President of the Barbados Paralympics Association inaugurated the newly built disabled access to the British High Commission building in Collymore Rock St Michael on Thursday 1st December.
