Your contribution to Out and About: Reviewing #AccessibleFife would be really appreciated. This is an initiative to get another 50 venues in Fife reviewed on Euan’s Guide. The aim of Euan’s Guide is “to empower disabled people by providing information that will give confidence and choices for getting out and about.” All you need to do is open the website and fill in a review form, it is very short and simple. On the home page, you will also find some completed reviews for reference. We will host an information session on Friday, 3 February, 11:00 to 13:15, at the Homelands Trust, Paxton Centre. A light networking lunch will be provided, please contact us to book a place.
