Help with disabled access

Disabled access

If you suffer with mobility problems, or face challenges getting around, it can be difficult to get to the places that you need to go to.


A great way to prepare for a journey or a visit to Stockport is to use the DisabledGo website. This provides information on a whole host of local services, businesses, buildings and venues. It also provides ‘access guides’, which contain details about services and answer common questions disabled people, their families or their carers may have about Stockport. The access guides use information gathered during site visits and were created with the help of disabled people and Stockport Council.

RADAR National Key Scheme (NKS)

The national RADAR National Key Scheme provides independent access to approximately 7,000 public toilets that are normally kept locked. The doors to the accessible public toilets have standard locks fitted, and the keys are available for people with disabilities.

As well as public toilets, there are other toilets provided by a number of different  organisations. These are fitted with NKS locks, ensuring facilities in bus and railway stations, shopping centres and pubs or clubs are available for disabled people.

For more information about the scheme phone Stockport Council's Disability Services.
