Accessible day trips

Neuro Café 17th August 2022 by Linda S



Sarah hosted today's session on travel tips and inspiration for over the summer break. Despite a survey claiming 70% of disabled people do not fly, being disabled does not mean you cannot travel! Travel home and abroad is possible but requires planning.


Considerations


  • Location of trip ​

  • Is it accessible to your level of mobility? ​

  • Would hiring a mobility scooter/electric wheelchair help? ​

  • How long do you want to be away from home?​

  • How will you get there ? ​

  • Toilets/ facilities ?​

  • Do you want to go alone or with others? ​

  • Do you need to take medication? ​


Tips



  • Radar key. Gives access to disabled toilets around the UK.

  • Motability - Scooters, powered wheelchairs. Leased using mobility allowance.

  • Shop mobility - Centres around the UK, which hire out mobility equipment to the public.


Inspiration
