Accessibility

How can we make society more inclusive?

This question unlocked a labyrinth of problems and solutions. When we turned to families to ask them what helped them through new experiences we unlocked a beautiful answer: storytelling. This information pack will tell you all about what they mean by this, and how the medium of storytelling is enabling us to unite communities.

The project is looking for forward-thinking businesses looking to connect with their community through the use of storytelling.

We are currently piloting this in Dundee, Angus and Fife and have recruited some Ambassador’s who would be willing to share their knowledge and expertise with you.

This is a free service.

Changing Places Toilets

PAMIS

Over a 1/4 million people need Changing Places toilets to enable them to get out and about and enjoy the day-to-day activities many of us take for granted.

The Changing Places Consortium is a group of organisations working together to ensure that Changing Places Toilets are installed and maintained in public spaces so that all disabled people can access their communities - go to the shops, attend hospital appointments, take part in leisure and cultural activities, socialise and travel with the same dignity as everyone else. A Changing Places Toilet has more space and the right equipment, including a height adjustable changing bench and a hoist.

To find your nearest registered Changing Places toilet in the UK please click here, go to the location map and type in an address, town or postcode. For information and advice in Scotland contact PAMIS.

OOVIRT are customer experience and VR specialists. They provide an innovative 4-step process to develop your organisation’s staff and the location’s access information. This will help ensure you do not discriminate whilst also supporting your efforts to maximise profit and positive customer feedback.

Each step can be taken as an individual service or in any combination that best meets the business requirements. Find out more about how they can help your business at www.oovirt.com
