DisabledGo: UK Access Guide

| 0 Comments

DisabledGo


There have been some recent upgrades to Gregory Burke's Inclusive Travel website DisabledGo.com. More than the continuned improvements to graphical quality and navigation is an assertion of unique value.

The following distinctions about their mission reveal the emergence of a second stage of maturity in this market -- differentiation between stable businesses that exclusively serve travelers with disabilities:

What we do

The information provided by DisabledGo in the Detailed Access Guides is designed to provide the broadest range of fine-grain access information for a wide range of disabled people. It is the most in-depth disabled access information guide ever. The information is designed to empower disabled people to make their own informed decisions as to the usability of the venue based on their own particular access requirements.

You may find venues which are totally unsuitable for your disability but they will have relevance for other people's impairments. Additionally, our research has shown that sometimes it is as important to know what is not accessible to your own individual circumstances as to know what is. That way, journeys are not wasted and evenings are not ruined.


What we don't do

Although DisabledGo's Detailed Access Guides convey a lot of pertinent information, they are not Access Audits. The purpose of an Access Audit is to carry out a physical assessment of a building and service and make recommendations. DisabledGo does not make recommendations. Instead, DisabledGo's Researchers record a wide range of detailed access information - "we say it as we see it" - so that disabled people are in control by having independent, reliable information from which they can decide whether they wish to go to that venue.
