Inclusive Design Magazine
“I went to the Care Show at the NEC in October,” she told us, ”and I was really impressed with the variety of companies and services represented there.”
At that point the first issue of the magazine had just been published, and the care industry is now one of their targeted sectors.
“At first I thought it would be mainly architects and interior designers we would attract, but so many of the initial subscriptions came in from occupational therapists and care home owners and managers, I was quite surprised,” she said.”I had rather underestimated the huge input that OTs and the care sector have in specifying elements that until then I had considered ‘built environment’ and the responsibility of architects and developers.”
The magazine is editorially-led and has upcoming features such as a round-table forum where a panel of experts discuss inclusive play equipment, a case study of how Wrexham AFC improves the matchday experience for its disabled fans, a diary-style feature with a man who is dedicated to putting accessible caravans on holiday parks around the country, and an opinion piece about the lack of hoists in public buildings and hotels.
“I’m hoping to meet a lot of people at the Care Show in April who will be able to share their expertise with our readers,” Juliet added. “Our aim is to highlight good design, promote fresh ideas, share best practice, and provide a great read - while improving accessibility in the built environment.”
Inclusive Design Magazine is the only print and digital magazine devoted entirely to accessibility and inclusive design in the built environment that directly targets architects, interior designers, property managers, construction companies, occupational therapists, and care home owners and managers.
