DisabledGo - Dundee launch event

Last night, I had the pleasure of attending the launch event at the City Chambers of the DisabledGo web pages for Dundee.  DisabledGo is a superb resource for all residents who want to know more about disabled access in the area and Dundee joins many other parts of the UK already covered.

The guide, launched in partnership with the City Council covers over 1,000 venues including cinemas, hotels, parks, leisure centres, council offices, high street stores, restaurants, tourist attractions and so much more.    DisabledGo allows people to find out not only whether venues have adapted toilets or parking close by - and also specific details such as whether there are tactile or Braille markings in lifts or on doors, the dimensions of toilets, the positioning of fixtures and fittings and whether they can request information in large print or Braille.

The presentations about DisabledGo last night were really inspiring and I would urge residents to take a look at the excellent website at http://www.disabledgo.com/.
