    Creating greater opportunities for disabled people in Bucks

    Our voice of Buckinghamshire Business this week is:
    Martin McElhatton (Left in photo), Chief Executive, WheelPower.

    As someone with a disability who has worked in Buckinghamshire for over 25 years it is interesting to see the changing attitudes towards disabled people and how one event can make such a difference in how the public perceive us.  London 2012 had a massive impact on our country and even more so our county. As the birthplace of the Paralympic Movement, Buckinghamshire was the focus of the World and the work which went on leading up to the Olympic and Paralympic Games has presented us with a unique opportunity following the Games.
