Here at Disabled Access Day we love hearing the positive ways in which Access Day has benefitted venues, spaces, and people up and down the country. So, in this year, we’ve decided to bring back our Venue Spotlight. First up we have The Scottish Fisheries Museum in Anstruther!
It’s the New Year, and we are all professing that the sparkly, sporty, fun side of ourselves is going to make a great appearance in 2017; we can overindulge in the sweet treats over the festive season just as much as anyone else!
Read about the story of our #AccessDay arrow!
Accessibility Mark has joined forces with Disabled Access Day to encourage more disabled people to attend their local riding centre to find out about the opportunities on offer.
Often we are contacted by venues who are keen to take part in the day but aren’t quite sure what to do...
If you’re into nature and the great outdoors, we’ve got something exciting for you! Our 2017 #AccessDay photo competition is now open, and we want to see how you took part in Disabled Access Day last year.
With only three months to go until a weekend of fun, adventure and, of course, accessibility in March 2017, it is all too easy for us in the Disabled Access Day office to get swept away with organisation sign-ups, sponsors and Christmas parties.
Disabled Access Day, now in its third year of operation, always promises to be an event of fun, adventure and, quite possibly, the unexpected for both disabled people and the businesses and organisations taking part to open their doors for all.
According to our Access Survey that we run annually with Euan’s Guide, more than 50% of people who answered the survey in 2016 claimed that a lack of accessibility information, both on and offline, prevented them from venturing out and trying new venues, eateries or accommodations, simply because they didn’t know what they might find when they got there, if they were even able to get through the front door! This is one of the huge problems that are facing disabled people today, and yet it’s so ridiculously simple to address!
