Poor accessibility is often invisible.
For most people, barriers to access – both physical and philosophical – are out of sight and out of mind. But it is hard to fix a problem that you cannot see.
The Oxford Accessibility Project works to shed light on these issues and to break down myths and barriers wherever we can.
We're building the first online access guide for Oxford colleges and social venues, to empower people with disabilities towards greater social participation.
Our vision is simple: make Oxford accessible to all.
Explore. Equip. Empower
Our initial focus was to map the accessibility of every Oxford college
to produce the first comprehensive college access guide available online.
We believe this will help both present and future Oxford students and visitors.
We're now turning our sights to mapping Oxford social venues – restaurants, cafés, bars, clubs and more – and, looking forward, we hope to explore accessibility for non-mobility related disabilities.
Through the power of the crowd, our members are measuring, photographing and detailing the accessibility of every key social space in Oxford. Whether you're looking for a tasty plate, that special date, or just quiet study with a mate – we've got you covered.
Explore the environment. Equip with knowledge. Empower social engagement.
