What Everybody Ought to Know About Making Life Easier for the Access Challenged

Here is a one stop resource for people who are facing the task of making life easier for those who are dealing with access challenges. We aim to provide you with no-nonsense tips and advice based on our research and the day to day experiences.

Hopefully you will find our site useful. We will scan the internet and try to consolidate much of the contemporary information and comments about all aspects of Universal Design.

Start off by reading Our Story and come back often to review our progress and the solutions we have employed to make our life easier.

We are developing a holiday unit in Merimbula New South Wales Australia. This unit will be designed using the principals of Universal Design and will be a venue where products that are designed to assist the accessibility challenged can be showcased. The unit will be available for holiday rental as soon as it is completed.
