Make it easier for disabled people to find and share disabled access information.
Euan’s Guide makes it easier for disabled people to find great places to go. Their website is the disabled access review website where disabled people, their families, friends and carers can find and share reviews on the accessibility of places around the UK and beyond. Visit the Euan’s Guide website for more information (this link will take you away from our website).
The charity was founded in 2013 by Euan MacDonald MBE, a powerchair user and his sister Kiki after Euan was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease and a lack of disabled access made everyday experiences stressful. By breaking down the barriers of exclusion with the help of other people in the same situation, Euan’s Guide hopes to give everyone the freedom to explore.
Euan’s Guide are planning on creating a section of their website specifically for health and social care professionals to access information and resources and find out about in-service or continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities.
They are working with health and social care professionals across the country to break down the barriers of exclusion caused by a lack of disabled access information, to increase understanding of accessibility, and create positive and powerful opportunities for education and change.
