One year until Disabled Access Day 2019!

One year until Disabled Access Day 2019!

The countdown is on! The fourth Disabled Access Day celebration returns on Saturday 16th March 2019, and we can’t wait to see what next year brings.

Like any large event, there’s lots to do before the fun begins; and we’re excited to see what new things you all try next year. Events in the past have included descriptive art tours in Scotland, a celebratory BBQ and sailability experience in Northern Ireland, UK-wide discounts, sensory-friendly events in England and more.

Now is the time to save the date and let us know if you’re going to be getting involved next year. Whether you’re an individual who’d like to join in the celebration, or a venue who would like to hold an event; we want to hear from you! Get involved >>

We'd also like to say a warm welcome to our returning Disabled Access Day partner Barclays, and to our new supporters for 2019, Sandcastle Waterpark!

Paul Ralph, the founder of Disabled Access Day said:

“It’s great to see the excitement and enthusiasm for Disabled Access Day. So many people, places and spaces working together to celebrate the examples of great access and inclusion that can be achieved. It is particularly poignant that now, as we enter the one year countdown, that we know that Disabled Access Day 2019 will be so warmly supported.”

Euan MacDonald, co-founder of Euan’s Guide said:

“The success of Disabled Access Day has surpassed all expectations, and it is with great excitement that we begin the countdown to 16th March 2019. I am intrigued to see the line-up of events hosted by businesses and venues next year, and I hope that Disabled Access Day fans old and new will join in the spirit of celebration once more.”

Ian Workman, co-head SME UK, Barclays, said:

“Our partners at Euan’s Guide share a similar ambition with Barclays – let’s make society and communities more inclusive and accessible. That’s why we’re delighted to again be an official partner to Disabled Access Day. But we want to do more than ever before. Across over 1,500 Business and Relationship Managers, our Business Banking team have set the challenge to work with their clients across the UK to help them make adjustments that ensures their business becomes more accessible to their disabled customers. Small changes can make a huge difference.”
