Shaping the future of accessible transport

We work directly with disabled people, disability organisations, transport providers and policy makers to undertake research and develop solutions; amplifying the voices of disabled people in all decision making and collaborating widely with all transport stakeholders; demonstrating good practice and impact to influence policy.

ncat follows the social model of disability, whereby disability refers to the restrictions caused by society when it does not give equitable social and structural support according to disabled peoples’ structural needs.¬†

ncat embraces equality, diversity and inclusivity, with the aim that all its operations and activities are undertaken in an open, inclusive and equal environment.
