Euans Guide, the disabled access reviews website and app, is celebrating its first birthday today.
Euan’s Guide was created by powerchair user Euan MacDonald and his sister Kiki, as they found it difficult to find information on where had suitable disabled access.

It has been designed with disabled people in mind and strives to be as informative and accessible as possible. It also available to be downloaded as an app.
