Contributors and sponsors sought for charity app that aims to make public places more accessible

Planning a visit to a shop, cultural attraction or any public place can be a challenge if you have special requirements such as a disability, young children or elderly relatives. A new disabled-run charity, See Around Britain, aims to take away the uncertainty with its vastly detailed, GPS-equipped website and free app, both of which offer essential accessibility information and photographs for hundreds of thousands of sites in the UK and Europe, from popular locations to lesser-known destinations. It also includes all types of travel: railway and Eurostar, buses and taxis, stations and airports: in short it is a 21st-Century Domesday survey of transport and places.
