QEF had a very special visitor today. Her Royal Highness Princess Anne the Princess Royal came to QEF to visit gap year students on work placement from Lattitude UK, a partner charity of which she is patron.

The Princess Royal also met residents at Dorincourt and opened the new Infozone, an IT facility sponsored by the Karten Network and the QEF Spring Ladies Lunch Committee. The Infozone offers computers that can be controlled using accessible methods including an Eyegaze eye-movement tracking sensor.

Accessible aviation expert, Graham Race from QEF has joined the Heathrow Access Advisory Group (HAAG).

For some, flying with a disability is a daunting prospect and as a result people with disabilities only make up a small percentage of the total number of air passengers in the UK. Recently, a report from the CAA found that of the 260 million passengers that flew in and out the UK in 2016, only 3.1 million passengers used special assistance services. This makes up only 1.52% of all passengers, suggesting barriers for people with disabilities remain.

Early in 2017 we are holding three practical events across the UK to support disabled people who are considering travelling by air.
The day is suitable for individual travellers and parents of disabled children who are considering flying together with health care and support professionals who want to guide their service users.
