We are providers of user-driven accessibility data
We give our users the opportunity to identify which public areas and premises are accessible and we provide this valuable information to people with disabilities.
User-driven accessibility information on public spaces for people with disabilities
Accessibility affects us
The public space affects us all in our daily lives as we move around the city. Public buildings and facilities contain services people need in the form of health care, culture, leisure, recreation etc. The design of the public space often affects us much more than we think. For people with disabilities, design is even more important. Design in regards to accessibility should cater to the various disabilities that exist in humans.
We strengthen and develop accessibility information
Our project is based on this and aims to strengthen and develop public information about accessibility in the urban space for people with disabilities by including them in the information development, i.e. user-driven development that increases trust between residents with disabilities and the public sector.
A need that is only increasing
There is an increasing proportion of people with disabilities in Sweden and in the EU. The population is getting older and chronic diseases are increasing. In Europe, there are around 135 million Europeans with a disability (source). At the same time, digital technology offers great opportunities to increase accessibility to the urban space for people with disabilities.

We reduce inequality
Our work results in us including people with various disabilities in society and thus reducing inequality, which is one of the UN’s 17 global goals. We connect people with different disabilities with accessible environments. At the same time, we hope this accelerates the adaptation of inaccessible environments.
