locals & visitors
The Fylde Coast is an amazing part of the world to live and to visit.
Our aim is to ensure that it caters incredibly well for disabled people, as well as the elderly and parents with small children and become a destination where everyone, no matter of age or disability, has an amazing experience and creates incredible memories.
We are not just talking ramps for wheelchairs (there has been lots of work to enhance this over the past few years) we are talking helping businesses understand the barriers faced by customers with physical, sensory, mental health and learning difficulties so they can adapt both their premises and have a positive attitude to disabled customers.
“This project is a game-changer for people with disabilities and will enable everyone to stay, visit and enjoy the fantastic Fylde Coast and fly the flag for accessible tourism” – Stephen Brookes, Rail Sector Champion for the Minister for Disabled People.
Helping You Get The Best Experience
- Retailers, eateries, hoteliers and attractions who have taken part in Access Guides and Disability Awareness Training will be given a sticker to display in their window and a certificate – so you’ll know that they have done their best to give you the warmest welcome.
- All businesses which have taken part will be included in the AccessAble guide so you can search for accessible businesses across the Fylde Coast to ensure that your planned trip suits your accessibility needs.
- We have a raft of friendly and caring volunteers on hand who can help you during your stay – whether you are visiting our events, the theatre or the cinema. Book Your Buddy HERE
