What is NEAT
North East Action on Transport (NEAT) is an informal user led group which aims to make public transport more accessible to people with a visual impairment. The group started with a Newcastle focus, but since 2013 has widened its scope to cover The North East Combined Authority (NECA) area.
The group is co-chaired by the Empowerment Officer at Newcastle Vision Support and Jonathan Mears, from Gateshead and South Tyneside Sight Service.
The group meets by-monthly and is comprised of service users and staff from other sight-loss organisations including local sight loss charities and national organisations such as Guide Dogs and RNIB.
If you wish to find out more about the group, it’s aims, objectives and current priorities then please contact our Empowerment officer on: 0191 232 7292
