DAD2016Today marks the 50 day countdown to Disabled Access Day 2016. The annual event which is in its second year will take place on 12 March and aims to encourage disabled people, their friends and families to visit somewhere new.

The nationwide initiative already has over 130 independent venues signed up plus national chains such as Caffè Nero, Strada and Barclays Bank are also involved. Further information is available of events taking place on the day. Disabled Access Day will share top things to do in London, Edinburgh, Wales and the North East as well as a list of the great museums, galleries and theatres taking part.

A recent survey by Euan’s Guide found 98% of disabled people, their friends, families and carers would be likely to return to places that have good accessibility. For venues this is the perfect day to showcase their accessibility to disabled visitors and it’s not too late to sign up! For more information, please visit www.disabledaccessday.com.

More information about how organisations and individuals can take part in Disabled Access Day 2016 will be available frequently leading up to the event. Please keep checking the website for further details and updates or you can also join their newsletter via the website above.
