Staff training and awareness of disability needs during and post-pandemic.
Disabled people have been affected by the pandemic disproportionally to all others. Before the vaccine was developed hope was all that was given. With the vaccine now being rolled out, there is real hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel however there is also real fear in the process of being vaccinated and then real concern as to how people will return to society and partake in it as they have always hoped to in the past. With loneliness, there is also a very real chance that the challenges many faced before the pandemic will be doubled following it. WelcoMe is addressing these challenges and already making venues and destinations more welcoming and improving staff interactions with disabled visitors in general.
