Self-assessed Accessibility Information

Self-assessed Accessibility Information provides a list of available facilities and services, highlighted as being of key importance by disabled people.  Along with Access Statements, which provide a fuller written description of accessibility, it can help people with access needs make an informed choice as to whether accommodation, attractions, food & drink or shopping establishments meet their needs.
