The book states that some of these routes are possible for families with young children, people with limited mobility and people using wheelchairs with assistance.
Sheffield City Council Parks and Countryside Ranger Service has an extensive Ranger Events programme to encourage people of all ages and abilities to join in a variety of outdoor activities throughout the seasons. As part of their commitment to the principle of ‘Countryside for All’, information is included in the programme to show which events are suitable for families, people using wheelchairs, and where there are accessible toilets and parking. Events are free.
Sheffield City Council Parks and Countryside Health Project Team also produce a number of Step Out leaflets – a series of urban walks based in the Sheffield area promoting walking as a means of improving health. Detailed information is given about gradient, steps, stiles and access, although no specific details are given about suitability for people using wheelchairs or buggies.
