Campaigning for an accessible UK
DisabledGo are working in partnership with Leonard Cheshire to help promote their Action for Access campaign which aims to provide resources and information for campaigners and businesses.
Inspired by local campaigners tackling the issue of inaccessible shops and services in their local areas, Action for Access gets campaigners and businesses working together to improve access for everyone.
The campaign focuses on providing the right resources and support for campaigners so they can take direct action in their local communities. The campaign works with both groups of campaigners and individuals and offers support in campaigning through email, phone and meetings.
Talking about the partnership Amy Parker, Campaigns Supporter Engagement Officer at Leonard Cheshire Disability said,
‘We are really pleased to be working in partnership with DisabledGo. Together we can provide people with the information and tools they need to reduce the impact of access barriers and go out and take action for an accessible UK.’
DisabledGo’s founder and Chief Executive Dr Gregory Burke said
‘DisabledGo are committed to breaking down the barriers disabled people face and we see this partnership with Leonard Cheshire as another positive step forward. To date DisabledGo has collected data to 90,000 venues and made a real difference to the choices and accessibility on offer to disabled people. I am sure the partnership will increase access for disabled people to resources and expertise.
Campaign packs are available in alternative formats.
