Access Fife

#AccessFife led by Fife Tourism Partnership, Homelands Trust & The Rings is the next step to promote accessible tourism in Scotland. 

 

Accessible tourism is the vision to harness the growing, high value accessible tourism market, and for Scotland to become internationally recognised as a leading destination for people with access needs. Investment in accessible tourism will help improve social inclusion and sustainability and boost tourism's GVA contribution to the Scottish economy.

 

Strategic Project Outcomes for #AccessFife

1. Establish the social and economic benefits to businesses, visitors, and the area as a whole of creating an accessible destination.
2. Establish the principles of methodology required to make accessible tourism a reality, to ensure that there is a legacy from the project, which will allow the approach to be replicated in other destinations within Scotland and elsewhere in Europe, making Fife a leader in accessible tourism.
3. Establish the synergy between different players in the tourism 'system' that is required to motivate and deliver, across the supply chain, a fully inclusive destination.

Milestones are:

• Training: All staff to complete an online Accessible Tourism training programme (this has already been developed by VisitScotland and funded by the Scottish Government).
• Information: Each business to complete an Accessibility Guide using an online Access Statement builder tool and adding this to their web-site
• Physical access: Businesses to take practical steps to improve their accessibility and enhance their Access Statement – on a scale that is feasible for the business. These should include, where reasonable, both amendments to improve service provision (e.g. large print menus in restaurants, BSL guides in visitor attractions, provision for assistance dogs, etc.), and amendments to improve physical access.
