Whilst the majority of major problems facing severely disabled people occur in the manner in which specialised disabled facilities are provided in hotels and public buildings, with particular reference to problems of access, bathroom and WC facilities, there are innumerable problems in actually gaining access to advance information on facilities and access problems which can make life unbearable, not only for the disabled people involved but for their families, friends and carers who, in so many cases, are responsible for getting the disabled person to and from destinations and often having the necessity to do so by public transport. Membership of this Association will highlight specific problems and make recommendations to its disabled members as to which organisations and companies have taken the trouble to provide facilities which are readily accessible and conveniently usable.
A system of grading of specialised disabled facilities is being established which will involve the inspection of premises by our Disabled Facilities Inspectorate, which will grade premises with a series of symbols coloured green where they meet the requirements and red where they fail. It is intended to make available, to businesses of all categories, an AID Plaque with the appropriate symbols confirming the suitability of facilities provided, where the facilities have been found to meet the requirements.
AID approved facilities will be indicated by the following green symbols:
Where facilities do not meet AID approval, the symbols will be shown in red:
