We Can Access

We Can Access is an online platform where disabled people, their families, and their carers can find support and information about how to access places, services, and goods.

In 2012, our daughter was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour at the age of two. Surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy saved her life but left her with some life-changing disabilities. Through our journey, we have met hundreds of families who, like us, are trying to navigate their way through a world that isn’t always designed for kids like ours. So, we created We Can Access with the aim of enabling people in our community to come together to share lived experiences, find solutions and demonstrate that accessibility and inclusivity are vital for a more economically and socially sustainable future.

Visit wecanaccess.com and you will find:

Review Area: Leave quick and easy reviews of places that do access well and it’s not just about physical accessibility, it highlights sensory features or when the staff go that extra mile too!

Blogs: All about how to do accessibility and inclusion well. We welcome guest bloggers who want to share their stories!

Discussion Boards: Join in the conversations around everyday issues (e.g. transport, education, employment, etc.) and talk to other families and professionals that can help and support you.

Training: Free training for parents of kids with SEND on how to work with schools is available here. We are also producing affordable courses on how to make classrooms more accessible and inclusive for schools. Keep checking back for more courses for business and local authorities.

WeCanAccess is a certified Social Enterprise, a partner of the World Health Innovation Summit and a UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Champion.
