We founded Accessible Derbyshire (charities no: 1155675) in 2013 after several years of research.
The inspiration for this was our three disabled children. Our aim was to bring together information about the accessible tourism offering in the Peak District and Derbyshire so that disabled people and families like ours could easily find things to do and places to go that are accessible for them.
We also wanted to raise funds to buy equipment and provide facilities that improve accessibility.
Since its launch, Accessible Derbyshire has gone on to win a number of awards and in 2017 we were shortlisted as VisitEngland Tourism Superstars for our work in accessible tourism.
Our charity has won the support of the local community, the Mayor of Chesterfield 2016-2017, The Rotary Clubs of South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire and many, many more.
