Haringey Council have partnered with AccessAble to create Accessibility Guides for hundreds of venues across the borough.
The Guides are 100% facts, figures and photographs and 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.
We know everyone’s accessibility needs are different, which is why having detailed, accurate information is so important. It’s why all of the details you’ll find in this guide have been checked in person, by trained surveyors.
The free Accessibility Guide totally free and available at www.AccessAble.co.uk and on the AccessAble App.
Anna Nelson, Executive Director of AccessAble said: ‘We are so excited to have launched the accessibility guide to Haringey and would really welcome feedback from disabled people and carers on its impact. We know that planning a trip out can often feel like a military operation and AccessAble is all about going somewhere new easier. I would like to thank Haringey Council for their commitment and leadership, we really hope that we will be able to develop the guide in the future to cover more of what Haringey has to offer.’
Councillor Peray Ahmet said: “We are thrilled to launch the accessibility guide to Haringey and I would like to thank everyone involved for their hard work on this project. Not knowing what to expect, particularly about key facilities such as ramps, parking and toilets, is a barrier to people accessing their local community. Our aim is for the guide to support residents and those planning a visit here to explore the borough in the same way any person would and to have the best possible experience while doing so.”
Councillor Kirsten Hearn said: “Poor design, lack of information and understanding can often limit people’s enjoyment of their environment. The accessibility guideand supporting app provide a perfect solution that will help us to do what we want in our lives easily and freely. It’s a step in the right direction towards maximising independence and choice for disabled people, their carers, family and friends.”
