It’s time to stop and think about the accessibility symbol and what it means, who it relates to, and whether or not it needs to be updated.
The international symbol of access is one of the most widely recognised symbols in the world. The image of the person in a wheelchair set against a blue background indicates that a certain area or facility – be it parking, seating, toilets, transport – is accessible.
Despite being one of the most iconic symbols we have, many people think it needs a makeover to be more representative of a broader range of disabilities, including those that can’t be seen.
