first_imgThe idea was planted three years ago, after a simple conversation in Edinburgh involving the folks from disabled access review site Euan’s Guide. The chain reaction began, and thousands of disabled people joined in with the spirit of Disabled Access Day as it spilled beyond Scotland into towns, cities and communities all over the UK. In 2016, events reached Portugal, Belgium and beyond. This year is shaping up to be even bigger! This March, thousands of disabled people will be celebrating Disabled Access Day with their families and friends. Disabled Access Day is a weekend-long event which encourages new experiences, and new ways of thinking about accessibility and inclusivity. With a motto of ‘you and somewhere new’ – a sentiment we definitely endorse – this year the big event returns from the 10th-12th March 2017.
