Wheelchair Accessibility

Marcus Watkin, is striving to improving wheelchair accessibility in Shrewsbury and Shropshire. His goal is to help people, not just wheelchair users like myself, but all people, to understand the potential issues with access to businesses and public buildings. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy our beautiful town, regardless of their mobility limitations.

As an advocate for wheelchair accessibility, Marcus is committed to promoting and supporting businesses in Shrewsbury and Shropshire that are wheelchair friendly. He is compiling a list of wheelchair accessible businesses that you can visit and enjoy without worrying about accessibility barriers. Check out our Accessible Businesses page to discover these wonderful places.

We attend meetings, provide recommendations, and advocate for inclusive infrastructure to ensure that everyone, regardless of their mobility, can navigate the town comfortably and safely.
