Isle Access is a user-led charity committed to encouraging and promoting greater accessibility and inclusion for people on the Isle of Wight.
We provide services for disabled people, such as:
Providing adapted cycling sessions
Facilitating Access Group meetings
Acting as an advocate
We also work with the tourist industry and local government. Our website is a useful resource for information about Island accessibility.
Good accessibility benefits all visitors whether they are young, old, those with pushchairs, wheelchairs, assistance dogs, learning difficulties or temporary health conditions.
1 in 5 people in the UK have a disability or long term health condition. There are a lot of small or inexpensive changes businesses can make to allow greater access for people, helping to increase business profits too. Join our business club and keep up to date with new products and services
We are very grateful to all the Island businesses and organisations that support our cause of making the Isle of Wight more accessible.
