DisabledGo.com is the UK’s most popular Accessibility Checker. It’s totally free to use and has loads of detailed information about the accessibility of all kinds of places across the UK including parks, leisure centres, restaurants, tourist attractions, shops and more.
So far over 125,000 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 on DisabledGo.com 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. We include information on our Access Guides such as if there is a place for an assistance dog to rest and can the venue provide a bowl of water for an assistance dog.
The website is really easy to use, and completely free! Simply visit www.disabledgo.com and use the search boxes to find something specific, or if you want to have a general look around you can use the map on the ‘Places to Go’ page. Once you get to your list of results you can filter them to match your access requirements by clicking on the symbols relevant to you.
DisabledGo currently works in over 100 towns and cities and is always keen for people to get involved. This can range from coming along to an event to becoming a local surveyor. We would love to hear from anyone who would is interested in finding out more about our work in their area. We are also keen to hear from people who don’t have a DisabledGo guide to their area and would like to see our surveyors there next.
