Disability Officer Update

www.signpost.gg Guernsey’s website providing information for disabled people about services, activities and support is regularly updated. The aim of the website is to give you as much information as possible including contact details and referral criteria where required. If you cannot find the information you are searching for please complete the ‘was this page helpful’ box on each page. We will then be able to improve the website to meet your needs. Alternatively please contact disabilityofficer@gov.gg or telephone Caroline on 01481 732557.

Information about accessibility to venues in Guernsey

We have been working with DisabledGo since 2012 providing in-depth information to over 600 places so that disabled people and their carers, friends and family can find out about the accessibility of places they would like to visit. The free online guide http://www.disabledgo.com/organisations/guernsey/main-2 has been updated with this year’s guides which include the Princess Elizabeth Hospital, further venues and some of our Tasty Walks.

The information in the guides will enable you to check whether accessible parking bays are available, how to get to an entrance, if a hearing loop is available, what side to transfer in an accessible toilet, whether there are tactile lift buttons, if staff have received disability awareness training, if somewhere plays background music, if flashing fire alarms are available and if there is a place to sit and rest.

Please visit DisabledGo Guernsey and let me know what you think – disabiilityofficer@gov.gg or telephone Caroline on 01481 732557.

Contact the GDA.

We'd love to hear from you.
