The project involves improving the functioning of the City of Hajnówka in the area of accessibility for people with special needs by developing and implementing a new standard of providing services along with changes in public space in the areas of culture and tourism in cooperation with an Italian partner. The solution developed by the cross-sectoral Initiative Group with a transnational partner will be implemented with an extensive cooperation of local partners.
The new solution included in the Programme of Accessible Hajnówka Culture and Tourism will consist of the following components:
a. model audit of accessibility, for people with specific needs, of cultural and tourism-related facilities
b. standard of providing cultural services tailored to the needs of people with special needs
c. standard of providing tourist services tailored to the needs of people with special needs, taking into account the universal design in spaces
d. accessibility standard of the office, including customer service adapted to the needs of people with special needs in Hajnówka
