Persons with disabilities have a right to access their environment on an equal basis with others.
Many of us think of persons with disabilities as those who use wheelchairs, simply because this is the most visible of disabilities. Consequently, we think in a “ramp and grab bar” approach to accessibility. Accessibility is much wider than this, and includes access to information, transportation, communication technology and other services available to the public.
We follow the principles of Universal Design which is about creating spaces that may be used by all people without making special alterations for any grouping.
Our awareness raising helps the public to understand the legislation governing accessibility so that they will consider persons with disabilities because it is the right thing to do, rather than because it’s the law.
