Check out Blackpool Access Guides on the new AccessAble App!
The new App is free and covers 180 venues in Blackpool including top attractions like the Pleasure Beach, the Winter Gardens and Blackpool Tower, as well as leisure centres, parks and gardens, restaurants, shops and transport.
The App is available for IoS and Android. Users can create a profile, save their favourites and set their own preferences using AccessAble’s Accessibility Symbols.
The App does not provide personal reviews, but rather, step-by-step descriptions of what accessibility is like at a particular place – they are 100% facts, figures and photographs.
Crucially, each guide is created having been visited by an AccessAble Surveyor, who can collect over 1,000 pieces of information for just one venue. The type of information collected is all driven by AccessAble’s 35,000-strong user community.
Anna Nelson, Executive Director of AccessAble said: “This App is all about getting detailed, reliable information to the 20 million plus people in the UK with accessibility requirements. We want people to be able to use the App while they are out, filtering by the accessibility requirements that are important, to find the places that work for them. Growing up as a carer I spent hours ringing up and asking about accessibility, nothing was spontaneous and we were nearly always disappointed when we arrived. This App is a practical solution to that very real problem”.
To check out the new App simply download AccessAble from the Apple Store or Google Play Store.
