Disabled Access – have your say!

October 7, 2021

A press release:

Euan’s Guide and Motability Operations launch National Access Survey

A new Access Survey  will give disabled people and their families the chance to share their experiences, insights and feedback on how accessible Britain is.

Now in its 7th year, the Euan’s Guide Access Survey is the largest and longest running survey of its kind and is being supported by Motability Operations for the first time this year. Motability Operations is the company behind the Motability Scheme which supports disabled people in achieving greater independence and everyday freedom through access to affordable, worry-free mobility by leasing a car, scooter or powered wheelchair.

With all the changes in the post-lockdown world, capturing the views of disabled people on how accessibility has changed, has never been more important. With the addition of questions about pandemic-restrictions, this year’s survey will provide insight about public sentiment and the impact of Covid-19 on accessibility and safety.

The organisations are working together to ask everyone who has ever had to consider disabled access to share their opinion on accessibility in 2021. The data gathered will be used to provide a picture of disabled access in the UK and will be compared with previous results to find out if access is getting better or worse.

Delia Ray, Motability Operations’ head of marketing, commented on the partnership:

“We’re pleased to be working with Euan’s Guide to give our customers the chance to share their views on how accessible they find daily life. Since lockdown restrictions have eased, we all want to get out safely and having reliable accessibility information builds confidence and helps everyone to enjoy the benefits of getting out and about. We hope our customers will share their thoughts and feedback to ensure that accessibility continues to be a priority for venues across the UK.”
