Individuals and organisations will be equipped with the tools to make facilities more accessible thanks to a new partnership.

The Bermuda Tourism authority has teamed up with global architecture firm OBMI to provide sessions on accessibility.

Through its programme, Accessible Solutions, OBMI has created a focus on inclusivity for those with physical impediments and has assembled a team “to create improved accessibility for those who live, work and visit Bermuda”.

The Bermuda National Tourism Plan places an emphasis on infrastructure and has a mandate to build “frictionless experiences” from arrival to departure while OBMI advocates for a “barrier-free Bermuda”.

Bobbi Singh, OBMI business operations and marketing associate, said: “Given the parallel commitment between those outlined in the National Tourism Plan and the OBMI pledge to improve accessibility, we are proud to collaborate with the BTA in their efforts to promote and grow accessibility across the island.

“Accessible Solutions brings together our team of experienced architects, interior and landscape designers who are focused on creating improved accessibility for businesses and residences in Bermuda.”

Accessibility Awareness training sessions are ongoing and can be booked online. Participant fees are $65, and payments are accepted online.

Accessible Solutions Information Sessions start April 21, are free of charge and can be booked online.
