DisabledGo - information about disabled access to places of interest

Description:

DisabledGo aims to maximise independence and choice for disabled people in accessing places of interest.

They work on behalf of Local Authorities, Universities, NHS Trusts and private sector organisations to publish detailed access information on well over 125,000 places of interest across the UK and the Republic of Ireland.

DisabledGo is unique among national access information providers because they::

  • visit and survey every venue on their website in person
  • use a survey method that over 800 groups of disabled people have fed into
  • have a national network of steering groups that guide their work and support the continuous development of their service
  • offer a standardised service – from Aberdeen to Portsmouth their trained surveyors use the same high standards and pan-disability survey template to ensure that all their guides are accurate, reliable and presented in a user-friendly format.


They do this because:

  • a venue which self-reports its access can all too often miss, overlook or fail to appreciate the reality of the access they provide
  • the majority of venues do not have the expertise or the time to go into the detail that many disabled people need to have to make an effective judgement about the suitability of access.
