Streets for All Accessible Streets Campaign
Many local authorities are redesigning their streets to accommodate more pedestrians and cyclists, in order to adhere to social distancing measures. New one-way systems, increased cycle lanes and outdoor seating areas, however, are acting as physical barriers to blind and partially sighted pedestrians. Many of these changes are being implemented with little consultation and they are not being communicated effectively to disabled people.
We can't do it without you
Henshaws rely on voluntary donations; our work just wouldn’t be possible without people like you. Your support empowers local people living with sight loss and a range of other disabilities to increase their independence, achieve their dreams, and go beyond expectations.
