Local people get involved in updating North Lanarkshire’s Accessibility Checker | DisabledGo News and Blog

What a fantastic idea, we need to do this for every county in the UK!

National disability organisation, DisabledGo, have been working in North Lanarkshire since 2015 to provide an Accessibility Checker. Available at http://www.disabledgo.com it’s totally free to use and has loads of detailed information about the accessibility of all kinds of places across the area, including, parks, leisure centres, restaurants, tourist attractions, shops and more. Over 1,000 places have been included and crucially each one has been visited and assessed by a trained surveyor, so you can get all the facts, knowing someone has been and checked it in person. Every place included in the Accessibility Checker has its own Access Guide, which includes details of parking, entrances, toilets, together with measurements and photographs. There really is lots of detail and the information isn’t just about physical access, it covers things that people with visual impairments, hearing impairments, autism, dementia, learning disabilities and mental health issues have all said are important.
