Accessible Days Out For All The Family

Accessible Days Out For All The Family

A Sheffield mother has set up a blog designed to ensure families can enjoy accessible days out and to encourage all amenities to ensure accessibility is at the front of their minds.

The Trips With A Tot community group was set up two years ago to provide information on the best places for families with young children to go.

One of its administrators, Naomi Cooper, became a wheelchair/mobility scooter user earlier this year due to complications caused by giving birth to her second child.

She says: “When I first started having to rely on mobility aids, I realised that going places was not going to be as easy as it once was. And I’ll be honest… it was depressing. But the good thing is that I slowly learnt how to adapt and find some awesome places to go that are great fun, amazing, accessible AND family friendly.

I’ve been recommended to write a blog post about accessible days out. But I wasn’t sure if it was the right thing to do… it’s only been 6 months or so of experiencing life like this, and I’m far from an expert. However, we have indeed gone a LOT of places in the last few months with a wheelchair or mobility scooter, and so, I thought it could definitely help at least a few people to share my top tips.”

You can see Naomi’s guide to accessible family days here and she also has a page on Twitter

Naomi adds that she would love to hear from other disabled people who want to recommend accessible days out, trips and places to go. Please contact her through any of the above sites.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.
