Are you gearing up for a 'staycation' this summer? Do you need information about Accessible Britain?

Emma West, counsellor, disability benefit tribunal member and author, specialising in writing about disability and health has written the foreword for the guide and highlights the importance of understanding and incorporating the needs of unpaid carers:

Of course, great access is not only essential for people with disabilities, it also eases the pressure on carers. So, in this edition we’ve been working with the Carers Trust to highlight how attractions are meeting the needs of Britain’s seven million unpaid carers.

The eighth edition of the guide is now available and has been designed to be an easy to use, enjoyable read, filled with inspirational and practical advice to help you plan your day out. 

The guide is categorised by area so whether you are looking to stay local or go further afield the guide has you covered. There is a section covering the Northeast and Yorkshire which includes a door stop highlight of MIMA (Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art).

The guide is available for free and can be viewed online or downloaded:
