The trade body said in a statement: “The business case for providing your team with training and improving the information about accessibility to your leisure venue has never been stronger. One in five people in the UK are disabled – that’s 20% of your potential market. And with a massive 31 per cent increase in the number of domestic trips in recent years, and an ageing population, demand is only set to grow with regards to more accessible venues.
“There is a common perception that improving training and information about accessibility is only about wheelchair users. In reality, less than nine per cent of the UK disabled population uses a wheelchair.
People with autism ,hearing loss, visual or mental impairment, and families with young children also benefit, as will your business as you improve understanding and communication to your customers.”
