“Access All Areas: A Guide to Destination Access Audits”

Production of this guide was commissioned by Tourism South-East on behalf of Accentuate, a transformational programme of 15 projects, inspired by the Paralympic Movement.  It was produced by Outside the Box, a team of disabled Consultants in East Sussex comprising of Theresa Hodge, Kristina Veasey, Charles Ellis and Andrew Bruce.

This best practice guidance is for Local Authorities wishing to carry out a destination access audit.  Its aim is to take you through the different key stages of the process.  Destination access audits assess the experience of disabled visitors with mobility, visual and hearing impairments, from arrival to what they encounter around the destination. This includes public transport links, parking, WC provision, as well as accessibility to shops, restaurants, parks and tourist attractions.  Recommendations are made on how barriers to access can be removed.
