A different accessibility statement
I love this accessibility statement!
I was out walking along this seafront this morning and came across this.
It is a set of 8 outdoor tables and seating, in front of a café.
This sign is in front of each of the 4 tables in the front row. It reads:
Please prioritise these tables for disabled users”
How many times do you see tables like this but fixed benches all around them, leaving no space for a wheelchair (or pushchair, walking frame etc..)?
What I love about this is that every table is like this, so there is wheelchair space with each one.
The notice is just reminding customers who aren’t disabled that it is a lot easier for them to sit further away than it might be for someone who is disabled.
An accessibility statement is not there to tick a box. It is to show that you care. This is why I love this, it speaks volumes about the ethos of the café owner.
