Euan’s Guide is the disabled access review website and app that aims to ‘remove the fear of the unknown’ and inspire people to try new places. The website was founded in 2013 by brother and sister, Euan and Kiki MacDonald, after Euan became a powerchair user. After spending hours of their time making enquiries about access at places they wanted to go, the duo realised that they could not be alone in their search for disabled access information. This idea became Euan’s Guide, a digital charity that is helping to open up towns and cities to disabled people everywhere.
Everybody can get involved with Euan’s Guide! Disabled people, their friends and families can use the website to search for listings and reviews of venues across the UK and beyond. Listings include information about accessible toilets, wheelchair access, hearing loops and multiple other access features that exist at any one particular venue. The cornerstone of Euan’s Guide however is its community of independent reviewers, who share their photos and experiences of restaurants, hotels, train stations, attractions and anywhere else they may have visited. By sharing their experiences people can give others an idea of what to expect when they visit somewhere new for the first time. For the venue, the reviews provide honest feedback on accessibility, along with feedback on how to improve facilities for disabled customers.
By listing your venue on Euan’s Guide, you can demonstrate to current and potential audience members that you are fully committed to ensuring that your events are accessible to all. Find out more by visiting the website.
