Disabled Access Day recognises that disabled people and their family, friends and carers don’t always have the confidence to try new things. The aim, therefore, is to encourage them to visit somewhere new by creating safe opportunities for new activities, and boosting confidence.
It raises the importance of disabled access and educates the wider public on the access issues faced by disabled people.
As well as individual support, the event is supported by over 200 companies who are trying new things themselves, launching new products and improving accessibility to help welcome new people to their venues.
Offers include free fayre at Café Nero and Strada and special events at places such as Sheffield Theatres, Buxton Opera House, The Leadmill and Pomegranate Theatre, Chesterfield, Kelham Island Museum and Tropical Butterfly House.
