 A press release from DisabledGo:

DisabledGo, the UK’s leading provider of online access guides, has teamed up with disability blogger Glen Shorey from The Adventures of Wheelchair Boy to give away a £50 voucher for their online store. The competition runs until March 16th on The Adventures of Wheelchair Boy, and is open to UK residents only.

 

In addition to the competition, DisabledGo is also running a launch offer throughout the month of February, with up to 64% off selected items in the online store. The store is part of a new-look DisabledGo website, which serves up 120,000 disability access guides to over 35,000 unique visitors a month.

 

Catriona Lasselin, Head of Digital & Brand Marketing at DisabledGo, said: “We’ve been following Glen’s blog for a while now – we love his matter of fact, ‘tell it how it is’ attitude. Glen goes to a lot of concerts and TV recordings, and so it’s great to see what he thinks about some of the venues that we cover.”

About DisabledGo:

 

1. DisabledGo was founded in 2000 by Dr. Gregory Burke, a wheelchair user since the age of 16. Gregory’s aim was to find a way of breaking down barriers which disabled people face when trying to access leisure, education, employment and other services in their community.

 

2. Our first access guide was launched in 2002 following an unprecedented national consultation exercise among disabled people and representatives.

 

3. 11 years on from the launch of our very first guide, we now publish access information to well over 120,000 places of interest across the UK, working in partnership with local authorities, universities, colleges, NHS Trusts and private sector organisations. We continually consult with disabled people to ensure we are collecting the information that is important to them.

 

4. Developed by disabled people for disabled people, we aim to give you more ‘independence and choice’. We give our users the information they need to decide whether a particular venue is right for them – we don’t attempt to judge a venue’s accessibility on their behalf.

 

5. We send one of our specially trained surveyors to visit every single venue featured on our website in person. Our surveyors use the same high standards to assess each venue so you can be confident in the consistency of the information we publish.

 

6. All of our access information is available free of charge on our website http://www.disabledgo.com where we also publish disability news and a calendar of disability events. Our website also features an online shop, offering an extensive range of specialist mobility and daily living aids, an exclusive range of financial services dedicated to the needs of disabled people and a job search portal featuring employment opportunities with inclusive companies.

 

7. We also provide a range of inclusive solutions for business partners, including: bespoke surveying services, online training solutions, specialist accessibility consultancy and recruitment services.
