There are just a few days until The Big Event by Motability Operations and we really hope we’ll see you at the Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 September. 

We’ll be there to tell people what it is we do here at Euan’s Guide, from our disabled access review website to our Red Cord Card scheme and, of course, the UK’s largest Access Survey… which launches at the event on Friday 15 September!

Of course, we’re excited about the launch of the 2023 Euan’s Guide Access Survey Supported by Motability Operations, but of course we understand you’ll be there to also find out more about the Motability Scheme and all that will be on offer! 

The Big Event allows people the opportunity to explore a wide range of cars, Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs) and adaptions, as well as powered wheelchairs and scooters.

Motability Operations shared some top tips for your visit.

  1. Make use of the free accessible buggy service to and from the car park to make your journey as easy as possible.
  2. On arrival, collect your token for a free tea, coffee or soft drink.
