The Blue Badge Access Awards are the result of two major design competition initiatives, coming together with the support of Leonard Cheshire.
The Bespoke Access Awards have now joined with the Blue Badge Style Awards to give a consumer breadth to a predominantly B2B conceptual design competition, producing a single platform to promote better design for people with disability.
Our objectives are threefold:
We have enjoyed great success to date with wide-ranging support from Government, disability interest groups, the media, hospitality organisations and sponsors. The new format will be bigger and better.
Supported by Leonard Cheshire, who have added their considerable expertise in the area of employment opportunities for those with disabilities, the new-look Blue Badge Access Awards will aim to recognise venues and businesses with a stylish approach to accessibility, as well as to praise innovative and forward-thinking solutions to the issues experienced by disabled guests when travelling.
Our objective is to ensure that all are welcome at hospitality venues and public buildings across the globe. Able-bodied or not, everyone should feel like a first-class citizen no matter where they are visiting, and no matter what disability, sight or hearing impairment, allergy, or access requirement they may have.
