We all want to get out there and enjoy life, and having good quality disabled access information inspires confidence and removes fear of the unknown. With good accessibility information being so hard to find, one review is often enough to encourage others to visit. Reviews are also sent to venue owners and this can be a positive and powerful opportunity for education and change. 

The charity was founded in 2013 by Euan MacDonald MBE, a powerchair user and his sister Kiki after Euan was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease and a lack of disabled access made everyday experiences stressful. By breaking down the barriers of exclusion with the help of other people in the same situation, Euan's Guide hopes to make the world more accessible one review at a time.

Reach Personal Injury

14 The Stables, Newby Hall, Ripon, North Yorkshire HG4 5AE

Tel: 01423 326000

The Reach story begins in 1995, with our founder Heather Batey. 

As a qualified, experienced Occupational Therapist, Heather understood that brain injury rehabilitation worked. That it delivered better outcomes for TBI patients – as long as it was delivered in the right way.

But the limitations of the NHS meant that this treatment was often delivered in a hospital or residential care setting – an environment that isn’t appropriate to helping a patient fully recover their independence. There had to be a more effective way to rehabilitate patients.

There was. Providing rehabilitation and counselling at home. Reach. A way of providing expert clinical treatment in clients’ homes to maximise their rehabilitation potential, and give them back their much-needed independence.

Reach’s story is one of teaching patients how to manage their own recovery. How to push themselves to achieve as much pre-injury function as possible. How to regain their own independence – and retain it.
