NEW: Scoot, Wheel n' Move Project Partnership with the Travelling Chair Web Portal

Travelling Chair is a new networking site where people with access needs can rate, review and share information on public venues. With enough reviews this site can be used to find accessibility information about everything from clubs to kindergartens.

Visit Travelling Chair at :

Members of Scoot, Wheel n' Move have been invited to join with Grit Media to develop the Travelling Chair website in the Eastern region of Melbourne. This is an exciting opportunity to promote the website as a resource that people of all abilities and mobility needs can use in their everyday lives. The immediate challenge is to review as many community venues as possible. This will help keep the website up to date and make it a valuable tool for the community. If you would like to be involved in this project, please contact Dan Newnham at EACH on 9871 1850 or 0406 066 423 or


End of year meeting and celebration

Scoot Wheel 'n' Move celebrated Christmas in style at Jamaica Blue cafe at Eastland Shopping Centre. Past and present members met in an informal atmosphere and reflected on their achievements in 2011 and priorities for 2012. Achievements include the launch of the Croydon Mobility Map and Scoot, Wheel n' Move wikispace in partnership with Maroondah City Council and support from Jack Mulholland (MetroAccess). Individual member achievements were also celebrated, including member John Van Delft getting married and honeymooning in Thailand - both John and his wife organised their own support to get around using manual wheelchairs. Members also discussed priorities for 2012 and one of the themes that emerged was promoting Scoot, Wheel n' Move and bringing in new members would be a great way to capitalise on the successes achieved in 2011.
