A charity travel website is appealing to the public to help it create a comprehensive ‘Domesday’ sized survey of disability access around the UK.

See Around Britain is a website and app that is GPS equipped to provide disabled holidaymakers and travellers with disability access information at venues, attractions and facilities across the UK.

The site is now looking to take its information to the next level by including reviews and photos of as many sites as it can in the UK with the public’s help.

Helping disabled travellers

The added content will help disabled people to better plan their journeys and also make more venues aware of any improvements they need to carry out to meet the needs of disabled people.

The 21st-century Domesday survey will take it to the next level to increase its coverage further and invite online volunteers of all ages and interests using their smartphones or cameras to visit every kind of venue in their local area and village, to add to our website,” says the charity’s Founder Trustee Marg McNeil.

“The venue owners that they visit will get an awareness of the varied needs of disabled people, and how to best meet them.”

The disability access charity is also looking for volunteers to help upload a large backlog of photos to the website and app as well as help raise its social media profile as well as support its editorial and administration.
