AccessAble has been working with East Dunbartonshire Council since 2008 to provide over 300 Accessibility Guides to the area, including shops, leisure centres, libraries, community centres and restaurants.
The Guides are 100% fact, figures and photographs and will give you loads of useful information to work out if somewhere is going to be accessible to you. They cover everything from parking to hearing loops, walking distances and accessible toilets.
On 26th October AccessAble hosted a Surveying Workshop in East Dunbartonshire. These workshops are one of the ways that we keep the Accessibility Guides up to date with the help of the local community.
The workshop, at Hillhead Community Centre was attended by members of a local youth training group who learned about how we create our Accessibility Guides and the work of our surveyors, before carrying out some surveying work at Bishopbriggs retail park.
