Taking the frustration out of finding accessible venues!
Hello, my name is Christian and I live in Gloucestershire.
I am a wheelchair user and have a visual impairment, I have visited many places across the world and my family and I have to research the simplest of things before we can visit, such as whether I can get into the building and if they have suitable disability facilities.
I thought about the things that would be most useful to me when visiting a City, and decided to create an accessible tour guide for Gloucester which I am beginning to develop to other areas of Gloucestershire. For the guide I have also included information for all disabilities from all walks of life, these are to include the deaf, the visually impaired and autism.
I will be visiting each place and will give you a personal view and commentary of the overall experience as a disabled person.
I hope you find my guide useful, please get in touch with any feedback or recommendations of places you would like me to visit.
