Wenman Healthcare encourages Warwickshire to back Disabled Access Day
Wenman Healthcare, is encouraging all members of the local community to show their support for Disabled Access Day 2016.
Taking place this Saturday, 12th March, Disabled Access Day encourages individuals with a disability to visit somewhere new and different – supported by participating venues who work hard to create a welcome, safe and accessible environment.
Having worked with a number of local establishments in improving disabled access, the Wenman Healthcare team has experienced first-hand the difference such facilities can make to wheelchair and power chair users.
Managing Director, Ian Wenman, confirms "Wenman Healthcare has provided a vast amount of equipment to local hotels and other establishments across Warwickshire, looking to create that accessible environment for disabled individuals – with typical equipment being ramps, bathroom aids and wheel chairs for use onsite."
"Though these changes may appear simple to onlookers, they enable the venue to create that safe and accessible environment for the less able, and for those who have to rely on mobility equipment it removes any form of access issue when trying to enjoy a day out with family and friends."
Warwickshire is home to a number or participating venues and events, which will be supporting Disabled Access Day 2016 - including: Café Nero in Nuneaton, Anne Hathaway's Cottage and Gardens in Stratford-upon-Avon, Barclays Bank in both Leamington Spa and Coventry and a Stratford Town Walk, which commences at 11am from the town centre.
Ian finishes, "Ultimately, Disabled Access Day is about encouraging venues to improve their facilities for disabled members of the community – whilst showing such members that they can do and enjoy the same things as individuals who do not rely on or use mobility equipment. Having a disability is simply a different way of living, which means the day-to-day enjoyments like eating out a restaurant or going to Café Nero for a coffee should not be compromised."
