Access My Events is a unique business designed to give disabled people the opportunity to attend events that are accessible in the UK. Here’s what they have to say by way of an introduction to the website:
We will source events that are accessible and build partnerships with those businesses to enable us to promote the event to the disability community across social media and through our network. If we find an event that isn’t accessible, we will work with the business to make it inclusive as possible.
Our founder is well-connected in the disability community. As a disabled person herself living with Cerebral Palsy, she understands the challenges disabled people face when it comes to sourcing and attending events that may be of interest to disabled people. Zubee has a passion for helping other disabled people access events and activities that are happening in and around their local areas – it’s so important for independence and well-being.
The aim is to grow our network of disabled individuals keen to attend events and make connections with businesses interested in making their events more inclusive, as well as encouraging others to do so. We also want to use Access My Events to raise awareness of disability and make inclusivity a staple part of organising an event.
