Accessible heritage for everyone

welcome

The project is part of disability charity Living Options Devon.

The South West of England is brimming with heritage; from country parks, to historic houses, castles, and rugged coastlines. It’s here to be enjoyed by everyone - but not everyone can.

Disabled and Deaf people (who use British Sign Language) struggle to experience these places because of physical barriers, a lack of accessible interpretation and untrained staff and volunteers.  

That’s where Heritage Ability comes in. We’re unlocking the heritage at over 20 destinations across Devon, Dorset, Cornwall, Somerset, and Gloucester so that disabled people and British Sign Language users can have engaging experiences with the places that we love. We’re creating Easy Read guides to large print formats, BSL tours, and more - connecting people with places. It's thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund that we can make heritage accessible - for everyone.
