Tottenham Hotspur celebrate Weeks of Action and introduce new accessible toilet signage

Tottenham Hotspur celebrate Weeks of Action 2017

Tottenham Hotspur celebrated Level Playing Field Weeks of Action 2017 by dedicating their home game with Southampton to the campaign.

 

The club promoted Weeks of Action and our works at the game including in the matchday programme, once again showing their support for the annual campaign.

 

With the recent appointment of Disabled Access Officer, Jon Dyster, the club have looked to improve the matchday experience of all disabled supporters through disability awareness training for staff and improved signage around the ground.

 

The club used Weeks of Action to introduce ‘accessible toilets’ within the signage at White Hart Lane to ensure all disabled supporters are comfortable using these facilities - including those with disabilities that cannot be seen, such as Colitis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Crohn’s Disease and for autistic supporters.

 

Adjustments in signage like this can be a big 'Game Changer' for disabled fans with hidden disabilities, and was well received by fans reacting to the news.
