Our Mission

Making the world a more SociAble place for all

It’s easy to take accessibility for granted. Why build a venue that you couldn’t get into?

Yet, for millions worldwide, poor accessibility is a daily reality and a tangible barrier to love, laughs and fun.

For people with access needs, knowing the accessibility (or lack thereof) of a venue in advance can make a world of difference. With the right planning, obstacles can be overcome, or plans can be changed.

By making it quick, easy and free to find access information, SociAbility is empowering people with access needs to enjoy greater social engagement, and to socialise with greater confidence, purpose and ease.

 

 

Greater information, engagement and representation.

 
 

For people with access needs—whether disabled, elderly or pushing a pram—poor accessibility can limit social engagement and opportunities. Simply knowing in advance whether a venue is accessible or not, in detail, empowers people with access needs to go out with greater confidence and peace of mind.

SociAbility is lowering barriers to finding reliable, accurate and detailed access information. For us, this is the first step to boosting social engagement, representation and, ultimately, quality of life, for people with access needs of all ages and abilities.

 
 

With SociAbility, everyone wins. Greater access information raises awareness of oft-hidden barriers to social inclusion, and highlights how easy it can be to tear these barriers down. For venue owners in particular, SociAbility helps you to better appreciate how these barriers might be affecting your business, as well as a community of local venues with creative ideas and simple solutions to overcome them.

Beyond just those with access needs, SociAbility empowers the broader community—in particular, the friends, family and partners of those with access needs—to build a more inclusive and engaged society. Whether it is a public event, a first date with that good-looking wheelchair user, or a family dinner with grandma, SociAbility makes it easier than ever to ensure that everyone has a great, accessible, time.
