South West Tourism has launched a new website to provide
visitor information for disabled people, their families and friends.
site - accessiblesouthwest.co.uk
- contains a wealth of
information on accommodation, attractions, beaches, parks, accessible
toilets and more.
Smith, Senior Quality Assurance Adviser with South West Tourism, said: “We hope that this new site will be of great interest
and benefit, not only to disabled visitors and their families, but
also to tourism businesses throughout the South West, who have found it
difficult in the past to locate comprehensive sources of information about
accessible facilities and services.”
many challenges to overcome due to the huge physical, natural and
historic diversity of the region, but we aim to make the South West the most
accessible region in the country.
Tourism has been working very hard over the past few years to increase
awareness amongst service providers of the needs of people with
disabilities. We aim to provide a great welcome and excellent
service for all.”
website is funded by the South West Regional Development Agency, and was
developed by South West Tourism together with the Good Access Guide
will continue to be developed and updated as more businesses improve their
facilities and services in line with the Disability Discrimination Act.
