GLA provides maps for 24 million tourists

The Greater London Authority commissioned Enabled City to provide 24 maps along the Southbank.

Southbank

The Southbank area has 24 million visitors per year, but most do not explore beyond Blackfriars Bridge due to access and uncertainty of way finding.

PhotoRoute will be used to increase access and footfall from Westminster to Tower Bridge, local business will be able to take advantage by easily embedding the maps into their websites.

PhotoRoute grew from a travel training concept for people with learning disabilities and went on to win a Visit London Gold Award, proving good access for people with disabilities is good for everyone including tourists, people with and without disability, parents with young children.

SeeAbility testimonial

“SeeAbility commissioned Enabled City to work with us to produce two short films concerning eye health and eye care for people with learning disabilities.

We found Enabled City to be extremely professional and committed to providing a quality product. Core to Enabled City’s ability you provide quality work is the skill to work with sensitivity and respect with people with a range of disabilities and vulnerabilities. This is a rare quality indeed amongst many less specialist agencies and ensured that the ‘finished product’ portrayed SeeAbility’s message in a positive and powerful manner.

Enabled City was able to source actors and models with Learning disabilities at very short notice and by doing were able to help SeeAbility to present its message in a person centred and dignified manner. They were also able to source other professionals, such as additional film makers and technicians, whom they worked well with in a really coordinated and industrious manner.

The work they produced for SeeAbility was to a very high standard and was delivered to a tight schedule in a timely manner. SeeAbility warmly recommends Enabled City to other agencies.”
