Policy Development & Delivery
Let us support the development and delivery of your accessibility policies and initiatives
EXPERTISE AND EXPERIENCE
As a small but vibrant independent national charity, Tourism for All has a long and successful history of supporting public policy development and delivery.
We were closely involved in the creation of the National Accessible Scheme, the first fully comprehensive assessment and accreditation scheme for the accessibility of tourism businesses, and in the run up to the 2012 Paralympic Games in London, we chaired the Accessible Tourism Stakeholders’ Forum, the body set up by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to ensure that the accessibility of the infrastructure and services supporting these Games was adequate.
We continue to be able to offer support for policy development and delivery, through the extensive experience and skills of our Board of Trustees, many of whom have lived experience of disability and many of whom hold or have held senior positions in both the private and public sectors, including the hospitality industry, healthcare, national tourist boards and politics.
DEPARTMENT OF WORK AND PENSIONS (DWP)
One of our Trustees, Chris Veitch, is the DWP’s appointed Accessibility Champion for the Tourism sector. This gives us genuine insight and input into accessibility policies and initiatives in this area.
DEPARTMENT OF CULTURE, MEDIA AND SPORT (DCMS)
We are delighted to count VisitEngland as one of our long-term Partners, supporting and promoting their initiatives and taking an active role in England’s Inclusive Tourism Action Group, which they created.
We are also delighted to count VisitScotland and VisitWales among our key Partners, working increasingly closely with them to support businesses to become more accessible and welcoming to disabled tourists and travellers.
