Tourism for all
Tourism for All UK (TfA) is an independent charity supporting leisure and tourism opportunities for all, operating an information service to disabled and older people, and working with the industry and government to raise the standards of welcome to all guests. TfA provides information to disabled and older people on accessible accommodation and other tourism services in the UK and overseas. Every year they respond to thousands of people who may need help and support to enable them to take a break they may not have previously believed possible.
TfA’s information service is backed by a website, www.tourismforall.org.uk, and supported by a helpline, 0845 124 9971. The aim is to provide lively, inspirational and comprehensive information that encourages people to try new things, see new places, and live life to the full!
As well as accommodation, travel, and attractions, TfA provides information about activity holidays for disabled people; equipment hire; places where care is available; escorts & carer services; and sources of finance towards the cost of a holiday for people on low income.
They are also working on a project called OpenBritain a website which aims to provide a large range of accessible information, so that finding a holiday or trip to meet your requirements will be easier than ever before.
TFA are also the creators of the Tourism is For Everybody campaign: a movement of individuals, businesses and policy-makers acting together to improve the experience for disabled tourists and travellers in the UK.
