Our groundbreaking photo travel app, gives visitors an advance look inside public venues, enabling the user to check out if it is suitable for their interests or needs, including families with young children, older citizens, or individuals with a wide range of impairments.
Please have a look at what we do –
See Around Britain & See Around Europe form a huge photo gazetteer throughout the UK and Ireland and mainland Europe, designed for everybody, including disabled people, to help decide if a venue will be suitable for visits.
Everything from transport access to washroom facilities can be viewed in a series of photographs of the venue. View the suitability and accessibility before you plan to visit or arrive at the venue.
Touch Trust provides person-centered sessions, which contain a varied programme, including music, movement, massage and relaxation. We also employ sensory integration techniques, such as focusing on proprioceptive awareness.
We are inclusive and open to all ages and abilities. Many of our “Guests” are on the autistic spectrum, have learning disabilities or other complex needs. We celebrate the successes and abilities of our Guests, regardless of how nuanced these may be. we promote creative expression, communication and self-esteem, encouraging our Guests to achieve their potential in our supportive environment. Above all, we foster a fun and enjoyable atmosphere!
