About Disabled Access Day
In 2015 Disabled Access Day began as a day to celebrate good access and created opportunities for people to try something new. The day was about highlighting the fantastic access that already exists in places, such as touch tours, relaxed performances, sensory experiences, level access and of course a warm welcome!
When is the next Disabled Access Day?
The next Disabled Access Day takes place in 2019. If you are interested in getting involved, sign up today to receive all the news from the Disabled Access Day team.

Paul Ralph - Disabled Access Day Founder
Explorer, techie and pottery collector always on the lookout for new gadgets to play with.
Paul's experiences of wanting to try something new but in a safe, welcoming and fun way were the catalyst for Disabled Access Day. The idea came after he wanted to try a bus, but not in the rush hour or on a regular service, without a rush and with time to get the feel for how it worked. The local bus company had a try a bus day, he tried the bus and afterwards he became a regular bus user. He then chatted with friends about creating similar opportunities, in varying settings ... and hence the idea of Disabled Access Day was born!
