I am writing to formally introduce myself. I am Caroline Walsh, volunteering with Ana and the team as one of the Social Media Editors with Tourism for All UK. I am a wheelchair user and cannot walk. I have been disabled from birth. I’ve been a keen traveller since I was 6 months (I am now 42😳). Safe to say I have seen some changes here and abroad..much progress has been made...much still to do.
I’ve been involved formally with accessible tourism in one form or another since about 2001, before that I researched environmental sciences related topics. It was in 1998 I started to take an interest in volunteering through tourism and accessibility/ inclusion around this. More on this and my other accessibility fields of interest at a later date.
I am really proud to be volunteering with the team
