Isle Access is delighted to hear of possible government funding to help improve access at our ferry ports.
Any improvements that enable people to travel across The Solent safely, comfortably, and with dignity is welcome.
On average, 21% of the population are considered disabled, or have a long term health condition that limits their abilities. This equates to over 30,000 Island residents, and some improvements may help others like people with pushchairs, etc.
And it is important to note that improvements may also make the Isle of Wight more attractive to holiday-making families who have a member with a disability: tourists are so important to the Isle of Wight economy.
