Visits4U Accessible Tourism
CAE led on ‘Visits4u’, an 18-month project on inclusive tourism, co-funded by the COSME Programme of the European Union. The pillar of ‘visits4u’ was to build capacity of the tourism sector across the partners’ regions in six European countries: Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Spain and the UK. This was achieved through training activities led by CAE to support increased awareness and skills in developing inclusive tourism provision. Following on from these activities, a series of online tools and resources were developed tourism businesses. The project also introduced the use of information in Easy Read and Sign Languages (national ones and International Signs) in the production and promotion of tourism packages.
By the end of the project in each of the EU partnering countries CAE supported a stronger network of tourism businesses with increased confidence, knowledge, and commitment to make their service more accessible and increase visitors with disabilities to their venues and cities.
