Homelands Trust Fife has announced that it will be joining tourist attractions and other venues by participating in Disabled Access Day on the 17th of January. Disabled Access Day aims to encourage disabled people and their friends and families to visit somewhere new and discover places with great accessibility.
Homelands Trust Fife joins over 200 companies and venues including VisitEngland, VisitScotland, Visit Wales, Standard Life, BT and disabled access review website Euan's Guide in supporting the day. A wide range of events are taking place including touch tours andcaptioned film screenings. There are also special promotions on the day at attractions including Buckingham Palace, Royal Yacht Britannia and the National Theatre, among others.
Homelands Trust Fife will be offering several activities, talks, therapies and viewings of their accessible self-catering cottages and the onsite Paxton (drop-in) Centre to visitors on the day.
Commenting on their involvement in Disabled Access Day, David Paton, development coordinator, said: Disabled Access Day is a great way of raising awareness of the many access issues which often prevent people from enjoying full participation. If gives venues, businesses and organisations an opportunity to demonstrate what can be done to break down physical barriers. Homelands have taken careful consideration to accessibility and we want people to know that access will not be an issue here.
Kiki MacDonald, Co-Founder of lead sponsor Euan's Guide, said: "Promoting good disabled access is at the core of what we do, so this campaign is close to our hearts. By hosting events and offering promotions to visitors on January 17th, all of the partners involved can demonstrate just how important disabled access is to them."
