Access for the disabled

The specific problems encountered by people with disabilities in enjoying the outdoors vary according to the individual disability. We give practical advice relating to individual disabilities.

Our membership is mainly mobility disabled people. We get about using electrically powered chairs / scooters.

English Nature believes that opportunities should be available to everyone including visitors with physical disabilities or special needs.

Fieldfare works with people with disabilities and countryside managers to improve access to the countryside for everyone.
