A Derbyshire organisation which promotes access for disabled people has praised the response to the UK’s first Disabled Access Day.
Accessible Derbyshire launched its ‘Big Push’ project last month aimed at making the Peak District and Derbyshire the most accessible National Park in the country. Businesses across the region joined forced for Disabled Access Day on January 17.
Jane Carver, co-founder of Accessible Derbyshire, said: “Improved accessibility means improved business so it makes economic sense as well as being the right thing to do.
“Disabled Access Day will be an annual event so we are hoping lots more organisation in Derbyshire will join in next year.”
