AccessAble takes the risk out of going out, giving you the detailed information you need to work out if a place is going to be accessible to you. Our detailed access guides tell you all about a venue’s access. They are 100% facts, figures and photographs.

Everyone’s accessibility needs are different, which is why having detailed, accurate information is so important.

We’ve worked with over 1,500 groups of disabled people over the last 20 years to establish a survey methodology and content approach to capture the information disabled people say is important when deciding whether or not to try somewhere new. We involve thousands of people each year in developing our service.

We send our trained surveyors to rigorously survey every single place in person. Surveyors aren’t there to rate a venue or say if they think access is ‘good’ or ‘bad’, they are there to collect the facts people have told us are important. We’ve surveyed tens of thousands of venues across the UK and Ireland, including shops, pubs, restaurants, cinemas, theatres, railway stations, hotels, colleges, universities, hospitals and more.

Keeping your accessibility guides up to date is a big job, and we use an ISO9001 quality approved process to do that. Last year we called 75,000 venues to review the information and sent surveyors back to update places that had made changes.

Check out the facts, and explore the details, before you leave home or on the move using our website and app.

“I founded AccessAble to put the control back where it has always belonged, with disabled people themselves. How many times have we been to places where level access was actually two steps up? Or the accessible toilet was anything but? We can’t change the reality of the access there and then, but we can faithfully tell you what you will find and then you can decide whether that venue is right for you. And if you try somewhere new with us, you can do so with confidence. As a wheelchair user myself, I know that’s key. And it has been key for the 4.6 million people who trusted us in the last year alone.”
