ACUA

African Centre for Universal Access

There is a great need to create sustainability within the tourism industry, and one key component is addressing universal accessibility, both from a legal/ human rights perspective, and from the perspective of accessing new markets.  It is critical that accommodation establishments as well as other tourism service providers accommodate all tourists and visitors with  special needs. The intention is to understand the range of needs of visitors and how to best address them, even if it is initially at a smaller scale, working gradually to increase the range of their user-friendliness. People living with a range of function and limitations had found that they were able to cope with the challenges and disability itself, but it was the environment in which they were expected to operate as a person with functional challenges was in fact most problematic. Regulation therefore was the best way to ensure that there was increased access for all.  It is this very point that needs to be driven home to every South African business, so as to ensure that all tourists enjoy equal opportunity for enjoyment.  It is with this in mind that the ACUA wishes to drive awareness and education amongst tourism businesses in South Africa and to sensitize businesses on the why UA is critical to sustained business success and how UA can be implemented. The aim is to address this through working with clusters of businesses and to bring partners on board to help facilitate change.
