Access Fylde Coast is continuing to work hard to help businesses and people across Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre during the difficult time we are all facing due to Coronavirus.
While our out-and-about help has stopped for the time being, it’s very important to us that we carry on helping to make the Fylde Coast an accessible place for all and providing as much help as we can to people with invisible and non-invisible disabilities in our community.
We will get through this together.
Free easy read guide
There are updates every day from the Government. It can be confusing to some about what we should and should not be doing.
We have put together a short Easy Read to help vulnerable people across the Fylde Coast understand the rules and advice.
You can download a copy here.
From basic handwashing to explaining social distancing, we hope this guide will help people in our local community to understand how they can protect themselves and stay safe.
FREE BUSINESS AWARENESS TRAINING
If you and your staff are currently on lock-down and have had to suspend business, we can help you all to upskill remotely, so that when the doors of Britain open up again, you will be able to open your business to even more customers.
By you and your employees taking part in our FREE Online Awareness Training – which you can do in your own time, at your own pace ( it takes generally 1.5 hours to complete) – you will be able to understand how you can open up your business to provide a positive experience to people with invisible and non-invisible disabilities.
There is no catch, and there is no need for you to spend £100s either – you will be surprised how easy, low cost and often free it is to really open up your business to everyone and provide the warmest of welcomes, so they come back again and again.
