If you suffer from a disability in Norwich you might have some trouble being assessed, as the assessment centre doesn’t have access to wheelchair users.

Residents of the city have criticised the council for failing to address the problem, recently holding a protest outside the centre.

Rather than being a mistake that is currently being rectified, the centre has remained on the second floor of the building for two years.

Norwich council has been accused of sending people waiting to be assessed to other centres as far afield as Nottingham and Coventry.

Equal Lives and Disabled People Against the Cuts (DPAC), have been campaigning for wheelchair access to the centre for two years now.
