For some time now, those of all abilities and the ones they hold dear have been subject to a less than adequate situation: a society that takes, but does not return kindness when that often used, but more frequently misunderstood, lexical choice ‘inclusion’ leaves the mouths of many. A day to day routine of steps, small bathing facilities and that word that few are keen on: ‘NO!’ no longer needs to be the case with a fun, frolicsome but downright serious initiative that has been ringing in our ears for the last three years – Disabled Access Day (or, #AccessDay for those savvy tweeters…or is it twitters? I can’t quite remember.)

It’s not a tough task to find a dog lover in the UK, but for some disabled people, our canine companions are much more than pets; they’re our partners in crime! Assistance dogs are a huge part of the Disabled Access Day family, and we want to celebrate their amazing work, and, of course, the cuteness overload they bring, over our #AccessDay weekend in March.
