#AccessibilityFails - tell us your stories

Hi guys! Nice to meet you all.

I work for a charity called Community Sponsors Homes, who provide wheelchair accessible homes for wheelchair users.

We want to promote awareness of the problems disabled people face, particularly in terms of accessibility because most people simply just don't get it. I've heard stories of people turning up to see an 'accessible' home with an estate agent only to be confronted with a flight of steps leading up to the house. Although the rest of the house was on the level the front garden wasn't! Like I say, some people just don't get it.

What we'd like to do is collect YOUR stories of how frustrating, annoying and sometimes funny other people's #AccessibilityFails can be. With your permission we'll share them on our social media to raise awareness of disabled issues.

Anyway, it's going to be fun getting to know everybody and I hope you have a good day :)
