Mobility expert

Mobility expert Dominic Lund-Conlon is well-known in his field for making a huge impact on many people’s ability to get around – both through his work with the Rail Delivery Group and as the founder of the website Review My Wheelchair.

Throughout his career Dominic has worked to make sure public transport is accessible in every sense of the word. He has worked on transport for Essex County Council, been Secretary for the Association of Transport Coordinating Officers, and a Non-Executive Director for ITSO Limited (Integrated Transport Smartcard Organisation).

Dominic says: “I have been fortunate that through proactively working with partner organisations, I have been able to share in some great successes.”

Now the Head of Accessibility and Inclusion Manager at Rail Delivery Group, Dominic works with local authorities, rail companies and disabled customers making sure there is joined up thinking on transport accessibility. He is able to directly influence key elements of policy at the Department for Transport and in local authorities, improving mobility for countless people using public transport. One recent notable success was supporting work to make the new Greater Anglia fleet of trains fully accessible.

Outside of this, Dominic also set up – a website which provides unbiased reviews of wheelchairs and wheelchair accessories. Now a leading resource in the mobility sector, the website both helps people to find the right chair for their needs, and also informs a huge range of healthcare professionals and wheelchair manufacturers, who now actively seek advice and feedback from the website.

The knock-on impact of Dominic’s work has improved accessibility for thousands of people, and he is well known and respected within the sector for his clear thinking, enthusiasm and support for others in the sector. In previous years Dominic’s work has been recognised as a finalist for the Stelios Awards for Disabled Entrepreneurs 2017
