Abstract

The purpose of this research has been to highlight the access needs of older and disabled people to those developing and promoting evening activities to ensure they create inclusive environments that meet the needs of all users.

The research has been funded through the English National Lotteries Charities Board and is a joint project between the Joint Mobility Unit (JMU) and Civic Trust Regeneration Unit (CTRU).

JMU is an access consultancy provided by RNIB and the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association to secure improvements in the built environment that enable people with reduced mobility to move around safely, independently and without undue restrictions. It is at the forefront of research and knowledge into the needs of people with reduced mobility in the built environment.

CTRU is one of the UK's leading regeneration agencies, pioneering best practice with over 10 years experience and 250 completed projects. It employs a team of experienced trainers and development specialists to provide a range of services designed to promote places for people.
