Disabled Access Day 2017 – Friday 10 March
Disabled Access Day began as a day for individuals, charities, venues and large organisations to celebrate good access and create opportunities for people to try something new. The day is about highlighting the fantastic access that already exists and help raise awareness of accessible ambitions for the future.
