    Story

    A teenager who has cerebral palsy is campaigning for the disabled community to have better independence in Lancaster.

    Cameron Redpath, who uses a wheelchair, is seeking to address “the many hurdles” he and others face around the city.

    The 16-year-old has lived on the Ridge Estate all his life and says nothing has been done in the area to help ease access for those who are disabled.

    “I like to go out and about with my mates like normal teenagers do as I want to fit in like everyone else but there are some barriers,” said Cameron who lives on Keswick Road.

    “There is only the odd drop kerb around the Ridge and therefore I have to drive on the road which is not safe at all.

    “We want to be independent as much as we can without the need of people having to help us all the time.”

    The Central Lancaster High pupil has said there needs to be more drop kerbs and tactile paving on the estate.

    Lancaster Bus Station has also become an issue for Cameron who says the facility is not “disabled friendly.”

    “The doorway doesn’t line up when the bus arrives and my bus stand is very awkward especially when the driver places the ramp down,” he said.

    “It becomes even more difficult to line my wheelchair up to the ramp to get on.

    “Sometimes the driver has to move the bus slightly or come to help me as there is not much space to move my chair around.

    “Its frustrating.”

    Lancaster MP Cat Smith met up with Cameron to discuss the issues.

    Cameron has now been given royal approval for his campaign work for the disabled in Lancaster. Cameron Redpath, who has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair, received a letter on behalf of the Queen for his six-month long campaign to improve disabled access. The 16-year-old is overwhelmed with support and now recognition from Her Majesty and Mrs Theresa May themselves is the icing on the cake.

    I hope you can support my campaign.

    Kind Regards

    Cameron Redpath
