Reports on the work of an advisory group and raises issues about the extent to which it should be anticipated that such groups represent the feelings and interests of the wider community without the infrastructure and support to enable them to access these.  The paper provides important insights on the experience of contributing to the work of the group and the practices that support this.  It was co-written using transcripts of discussion together with debate on symbol selection, to select key meanings to share with a wider audience.

Publisher:
Times Academic

This article reports on a study aimed at identifying the relationship between such locational activities and their impact on the social integration of physically disabled and able-bodied persons, as measured by the friendships they form and the frequency with which they meet outside the confines of the host agency. Based on a sample of members of a NGO in Hong Kong, the major finding is that joint locational activities have a spill-over effect on able-bodied participants, but not on the physically disabled. The implications are discussed and recommendations are made.
