Staff desire training but planning and budgets are major hurdles.

In February Visits Unlimited commissioned a survey of fifty popular Yorkshire tourist attractions.  We asked them for their opinion on their understanding of the term accessible, the current provision they offered for disabled visitors and finally the challenges they faced in becoming fully accessible for disabled children.  The results were quite an eye-opener.

VU Yorkshire Attractions Accessibility Survey

Analysing the responses it is clear many attractions focus their attention purely on physical barriers yet the results of family surveys we have conducted stated the priority for families was in fact improvements in visitor information, service provided in the visitor welcome and management at the attraction.  These priorities came ahead of physical access issues.

Isn’t it about time you considered some affordable quick wins in making your attraction more accessible for disabled visitors?  The benefits outweigh the costs.
