Do you want to involve your volunteers in accessibility issues? To do something fun and meaningful with your supporters or users? To teach your pupils about our cause ?
Involve them in an "Accessibility Day”
To be of genuine use and to make outings for people with reduced mobility easier, the Jaccede guide needs to have extensive and up-to-date information on accessibility.
Most contributions to Jaccede come from on the ground, so why not join the movement ?
Organisations such as Unis-Cité, Scouts et Guides de France, and the Association des Paralysés de France among others are already working to help Jaccede. You could join in too !
There are 3 stages to an Accessibility Day :
The briefing: What is Jaccede and how does it work? Why is accessibility important ?
Information gathering: as a team, visit establishments open to the public and describe their access facilities objectively, using the Jaccede guide
Meet up and review: after the work, enjoy a break !
The little extras:
Role-play (wheelchair, walking frame, etc)
When you are used to walking, spending a few hours as someone with reduced mobility is a novel and eye-opening learning experience! You will have a better understanding of why detailed information about accessibility, for everyone's comfort, is so important!
