AccessAble and City of York Council

AccessAble helps disabled people to find accessible venues and are here to tell us a bit about their work with City of York Council.

In November 2020, when City of York Council renewed their partnership with AccessAble, they committed to funding Access Guides for community venues moving forward. The idea being that local businesses would have the opportunity to fund the maintenance of their own Guides. A handful of commercial venues have taken over the funding to maintain their Guides.

AccessAble and City of York Council are keen to receive feedback from users of the AccessAble website and app (iTunes and Google Play) and find out how the Access Guides are being used, where you think improvements could be made, where you think the Access Guides should be promoted, and what venues should be prioritised for assessment.

On Tuesday 30th November, there will be a drop-in session at York Explore Library so you can find out more about AccessAble and provide feedback. 

About AccessAble

AccessAble gives disabled people, carers, and anyone who needs to know about accessibility the detailed information they need to work out if a place is going to be accessible to them. 

AccessAble’s Detailed Access Guides tell you all about a venue’s access - hotels and guest houses, places to eat and drink, places to visit and much more. 

They are 100% facts, figures and photographs. We know everyone’s accessibility needs are different, which is why having detailed, accurate information is so important. 

It’s why AccessAble send trained surveyors to check out every single place in person and why the information collected has all been decided by the people who use it.
