Disabled volunteers assess Sleaford's accessibility

A group of volunteers is heading out in Sleaford to find out how accessible the town is to people with a range of disabilities. Members of the North Kesteven Access Group will be analysing accessibility for those with visual impairments, physical or mental disabilities and those with pushchairs.

Their research will be published in a new access guide which will give information on how accessible shops and businesses are to residents and visitors. All shops, offices and commercial premises will be included and should expect visits from the team.
