Euan’s Guide, Disabled access review website, has received £5,526 of National Lottery Award funding. Since 2013 the website has provided a review service for disabled people and their families to discover and share accessible places to visit.
The funding will be used to develop and expand its growing Ambassador Network in Scotland. The network was introduced in 2017 with ambassadors all over Scotland helping the charity share and promote accessible places to visit as advocates for accessibility reviews. It is hope the funding will increase the number of disabled people writing about and discovering new places with great disabled access.
Euan MacDonald, co-founder of Euan’s Guide said:
“We could not have anticipated the immense success of the Ambassador Network in its pilot year, and we are thrilled to receive this support from the National Lottery to expand it in the future. Our Ambassadors will be delighted to share in this exciting news, and it is thanks to their enthusiasm and passion for all things disabled access that we can celebrate this achievement.”
Conor McQuade, Euan’s Guide Ambassador said:
“Being a part of the Ambassador Network gives me the chance to help promote this fantastic organisation. It also allows me the amazing opportunity to get involved in a great social community of like-minded individuals who share similar experiences to myself and are incredibly positive about promoting and trying out fun activities at places with disabled access.”
