The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has published an on-line survey seeking information from disabled people about their tourism experiences.
You will be able to say exactly what you expect when you stay overnight in accommodation or take a day trip to an attraction and give details of any problems you faced.
If you have a disability and would like to take part, the survey can be found on www.online.qfrs.co.uk/dcms. If you would like a copy in the post, please call 0121 344 4848 and ask for Ian Clarke.
