Brabantsedag recognized as easily accessible

On Monday, October 2nd, during the Week of Accessibility until October 7th, Brabantsedag received the Accessibility Sticker.

The sticker is awarded to buildings and events that are easily accessible, even for people with physical disabilities.

Heeze resident Friso Kraayvanger is the ambassador of the Week, which is an initiative of Ieder(in), a nationwide network of people with disabilities or chronic illnesses. Together with a group of Heeze-Leende residents, including Cintha Bax, he inspected accessibility on Sunday, August 27th: "Brabantsedag receives this sticker because they are an example for many events; they think about people with disabilities. Heeze has many residents in need of assistance; think of Kempenhaeghe, Kloostervelden, Nicasiushuis, and Leenderhof. Heeze is also one of the most aging municipalities in our country. Even so, the Brabantsedag provides special spaces for wheelchair visitors, a very spacious disabled parking area, and various toilets for wheelchair users. As an ambassador, I am truly very proud of this."

Friso emphasizes the importance of the sticker that was presented to chairman Boukje van Ettro by councilor Maaike van Breugel: "The sticker is exceptional. Brabantsedag demonstrates its compliance with the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
