This Saturday you can make a difference, all you have to do is to go somewhere you have never ben before. It could be an exciting expedition to a far away isolated place which even Google maps would struggle to pinpoint or a local shop a few minutes away from your home which has yet to welcome you as a visitor.

It doesn’t matter how adventurous you are tomorrow (17 February) the main thing is you go somewhere new.

Disabled Access Day has been launched by the Now Group encouraging disabled people to visit new places across the country.

The organisation supports final year students and they will be staging a special series of activities to tie-in with Disabled Access Day at The Hive, located on Grosvenor Road in Belfast. But if Scotland is out of reach for you don’t worry, you can venture anywhere you want to go.

Lorraine Hall, Transition Officer of NOW Group said: “We’re very proud of the fact that this group of young people have decided to get together to mark Disabled Access Day,”

“It’s important the people with disabilities feel welcomed and included in every aspect of their city and we hope our day activities and The Hive Bargainers’ guide will contribute to this.”

If you fancy being involved there’s still time to register for Disabled Access Day, just head over to the website and if you haven’t seen their pages before – well, that’s another new place you have just discovered.
