A New Disability Access Guide for Knowsley

Disabled go_KULODisabledGo is a free accessibility checking website where you can find information for places to go across the UK and Republic of Ireland including hotels, restaurants, shops, cinemas, libraries and more. Most importantly, every single venue on our website has been visited in person by one of our highly trained DisabledGo surveyors.

Knowsley Council and Disabled Go will be holding consultation events for disabled people, older people, carers and disability organisations to seek your views on the new access guide coming to Knowsley.

The DisabledGo project provides in-depth online access information for 700 venues across Knowsley including shops, restaurants, leisure centres, hotels, libraries, parks, and many more which will be available as an on online guide.

The access guide helps increase independence and choice for Disabled people. By providing detailed information on the access features of venues and public spaces Disabled people can make an informed judgment about the suitability of access.

Disabled Go need Disabled people to help identify a range of places and spaces across Knowsley to include in the access guide.

They are holding three consultations for disabled people, parents of disabled children, older people and carers giving them a perfect opportunity to contribute to the project.

If you are interested in work experience opportunities, please stay behind to have a chat with the DisabledGo staff member or click this Work Experience Specification document. The work experience opportunity will involve helping a DisabledGo surveyor collect the factual information publish on the DisalbedGo website.

More information will be given on the day with a short presentation.
