North Tyneside Council becomes the latest of over 100 local authorities across the UK to partner with AccessAble; the UK’s leading provider of detailed disabled access information.
North Tyneside Council has worked with AccessAble to create Detailed Access Guides to their venues and facilities, including libraries, leisure centres, museums, children’s centres, and countryside parks.
The Guides are 100 per cent facts, figures, and photographs to help residents and visitors plan their journeys to and around the area, covering everything from parking facilities and hearing loops, to 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 the Guide have been checked in person, on site, by trained surveyors.
Dr Gregory Burke, Founder and Chairman of AccessAble, said:
“We were delighted to work in partnership with North Tyneside Council to create dedicated Detailed Access Guides to their buildings and facilities.
The AccessAble website and App will provide vital information for disabled people, carers, and anyone with access needs; enhancing the independence and choice of residents and visitors.”
Cllr Anthony McMullen, Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, North Tyneside Council, said:
“It’s great that we’ve been able to work with AccessAble to create Access Guides for our venues and facilities.
“We know how important it is to our residents to be able to easily get hold of information about accessibility when they’re out and about and I’m sure these new guides will prove invaluable.”

It’s also available via the AccessAble App which is free to download from the App Store and Google Play, and provides accessibility information on the go.
The information to North Tyneside joins over 70,000 places already covered across the UK, making www.AccessAble.co.uk a great tool for planning a day out or trip away.
