Australian research study recruiting participants: Private vehicle access, modification and trip planning by people with disability

Research Study:
Private vehicle access, modification, and trip planning by people with disability.

This is a notice about a research study being conducted by the University of Technology, Sydney & OT Solutions for the NSW Department of Family & Community Services on private vehicle access, modification, and trip planning by people with disability.
Your participation in this study is highly valued whether you are driver with disability, have a modified vehicle for yourself or a family member with disability for private transport purposes or would like a modified private vehicle but have been unable to obtain one. 
This part of the study involves a questionnaire to gather your experiences in driving, having a vehicle modified, finding funding for the modifications, trip planning, and your service and parking station access.
The questionnaire has been developed in collaboration with the Physical Disability Council NSW.
The information provided will be used to better position the Department for future development and provision of information in this important area of citizenship.
The questionnaire will take approximately 15-25 minutes to complete depending on whether you are a driver, owner of the vehicle or somebody who wishes to own a private modified vehicle.
