It's Small Charity Week!
This week is all about celebrating small charities and the contribution that they make to people and communities all over the world. At just two and a half years old, Euan’s Guide has come a long way since its creation, and we’d like to say a big thank you to all of our reviewers who have made it what it is today!
Of course, many new reviewers and venues have signed up to Euan’s Guide in recent months too. As part of Small Charity Week 2016, we wanted to share with our contributors old and new what Euan’s Guide is all about.
Where did Euan’s Guide come from?
It all started in 2013 when Euan and his sister Kiki decided to do something a bit different. Having spent too much time asking about disabled access at shops, bars, hotels and more; they realised that there had to be a better way to find out what accessibility was really like at all kinds of venues. What better way to do so than to ask other disabled people?
Why write disabled access reviews?
Disabled access reviews are what Euan’s Guide is all about! Disabled people, their friends, families and carers can leave a review of any place they have visited; and all of these reviews help to build a directory of accessible places to go, from your local post office to a concert venue.
It can take as little as five minutes to submit a review to Euan’s Guide, and you can write as much or as little as you like! But why are disabled access reviews so valuable? More than any disabled access window sticker or badge ever could, reviews share what real people have to say about accessibility.
