Of course as you would expect we have created information in all formats including Easy Read, large print, audio versions etc –further information can be found on twitter Heritage [email protected]

 The three year project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and will see improvements in the accessibility of over 20 heritage sites-and we want to expand!.  Our partner sites include a range of visitor experiences, from Country Parks and grand homes to industrial sites and nature reserves. We are placing the award-winning Trampers, an all-terrain mobility vehicle, for anybody who needs them, to open up the physical locations as well as a raft of online improvements, staff training and new products.


Voting closes on July 27th and more information can be found at www.lotterygoodcauses.org.uk/awards
