Make Way Day 2024

We invite you to save the date and start making plans for Make Way Day which is taking place on the street where you live on Friday 27 September 2024

#MakeWayDay is a campaign that brings the disability and wider community together to consider the needs of people with disabilities in the public spaces we all share. 

People with disabilities will be out and about on #MakeWayDay along with disability groups and local organisations to highlight obstacles that block the way and complicate the lives of people with disabilities. These include:

  • Cars or vans parked on a footpath blocking the way
  • Bicycles/motorbikes chained to lamp posts creating a trip hazard for a visually impaired person.
  • Illegally placed sandwich boards, forgotten bins, barrels and other obstructions.

We will be making a social media kit available closer to the time and will also have promotional material available to order. For now, we invite you to save the date and email us to let us know that you are on board for #MakeWayDay24 on Friday 27 September. 

Note: We have changed the date this year so as to avoid a clash with Culture Night.
