Accessible Tourism for all is about the creation of environments that can cater for the needs of all of us, whether we are travelling or staying at home.

Accessible Tourism is calling for the right for all the world's citizens to experience the incredible diversity of our planet and the beauty of the world we live in. 

World Tourism Day is asking us to spread the word of both the importance and immense benefits universal accessibility has and can bring to society at large.

Travelling as a special needs family brings its own unique set of challenges. 

One of the biggest is access to a suitable toilet on family day out or on holidays away from home.

A toilet that provides a height adjustable changing bench and overhead hoist.

86% of families we surveyed have had to leave a venue earlier than planned because of a lack of changing facilities.

On World Tourism Day we are asking you to download our leaflet and hand it in to the venues that you visit to make them aware of the need for accessible toilets that include a bench and hoist.

Or why not email us - [email protected] with your suggestions on venues that need a Space to Change or Changing Places toilet and we will forward the information to them.

World Tourism Day is celebrated on 27 September to foster awareness among the international community of the importance of tourism and its social, cultural, political and economic value. 

This is reflected in our survey results which showed that 99% of special needs families are more likely to visit a venue if it had better toilet/changing facilities.
