We’re a finalist in the National Lottery Awards! We’re making heritage places more accessible across many disabilities so everyone can enjoy them - but we need you!  If you think #AccessibilityMatters, vote with your heart and retweet! https://youtu.be/H4lV2G5lReo  #NLAHeritageAbility

The South West of England is brimming with heritage; from country parks, to historic houses, castles and rugged coastlines. It’s here to be enjoyed by everyone - but not everyone can.

Disabled and Deaf people (who use British Sign Language) struggle to experience these places because of physical barriers, a lack of accessible interpretation and untrained staff and volunteers.  

That’s where Heritage Ability comes in. We’re unlocking the heritage at over 20 destinations across Devon, Dorset, Cornwall, Somerset and Gloucester so that disabled people and British Sign Language users can have engaging experiences with the places that we love. We’re creating Easy Read guides to large print formats, BSL tours and more - connecting people with places. It's thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund that we can make heritage accessible - for everyone.
