A local authority is looking to recruit new members for a scheme which raises awareness of difficulties encountered by people with disabilities in Aberdeen.

Aberdeen City Council wants people to join the Disability Equity Partnership (DEP).

It is made up of 15 members of the public who work alongside five councillors in order to tackle and remove the barriers that disabled people face on a daily basis.

Membership is open to people who live with disability or who have experience of working with people with additional support needs.
