I am very proud that Tourism for All has launched this campaign. I see this as providing a better experience for travellers and tourists as well as being a massive benefit to businesses. I have worked in the industry for over 50 years in many different sectors and with my experience and also being a parent of a wheel chair user fully appreciate how much better life can be for disabled people by the simplest of things – staff who are well informed, confident and welcoming.
