Purple Tuesday

Going shopping is something many of us take for granted – or activly look forward to doing – but for persons with a disability, and all those with accessibility requirements, visiting somewhere for the first time can be a daunting prospect.

We know that 98% of people with disabilities and carers look for accessibility information before visiting somewhere for the first time and 76% of people have not visited somewhere they wanted to because they couldn’t find the information they needed.

The Crown Estate, joint owners of Princesshay have recognised the ‘If I don’t know, I don’t go’ barrier and have partnered with AccessAble to conduct detailed accessibility audits and produce guides for all of their retail parks and shopping centres.

AccessAble are the UK’s most trusted and popular source of accessibility information, and have produced hundreds of accessibility guides with all you need to know about accessible toilet facilities, parking, walking distances, door widths, colour contrast, seating, and public transport with all the relevant facts, figures, and photographs.

The guides are available for free, linked via Princesshay | AccessAble at www.AccessAble.co.uk, and on the AccessAble App. For more information or to give feedback contact AccessAble at hello@AccessAble.co.uk.
