How might we help all people with any temporary impairment or permanent physical challenge to be able to use all facilities and all services everywhere?
This includes from all spectrums of physical challenges, ie. from a parent pushing a pram, a person with walker, crutch, cane or wheelchair. From poor eyesight, colour blind to fully blind, one broken hand in cast, no use of hands to no limbs, from crutches to wheelchair, hard of hearing to completely deaf, all people facing physical challenge. How might we best design for everyone.
Some ideas proposed by members and which all all be programmes going forward:
- A system for accessibility rating
- Revised Educational Curriculum
- Better Inclusive Events
- Better Inclusive Spaces
- Accessible Adventures
What will be covered in this group going forward:
