Everything started in Lisbon
“At midnight, on arrival from the airport, we froze in awkward silence. We corresponded with our accommodation provider in Lisbon for weeks before our trip, agreed on photos and exact dimensions, and discussed all the details. At least that's what we thought, but between us and the entrance, there were 4 huge steps. It was desperate, we didn’t understand why he didn’t talk about it, and we didn’t know how we were going to find suitable accommodation in the middle of the night. The problem was not with the attitude of our landlord, he would have carried me up the stairs.
At that moment, I realized that willingness to help is not enough, we need a common language about accessibility that we all understand and speak. I decided to do it”

What do we do?
The common language: Certified accessibility information
Access4you is a certification scheme for the accessibility of the built environment. Our certification helps not only people with special access needs but supports property owners and companies to gain insights into their building’s accessibility and also to reach their business goals. Based on our standardized assessment, we provide reliable and detailed data on the locations' accessibility to people with special mobility, visual, hearing, and cognitive needs for free.
Why is it important?
1 in 4 adults need accessibility information to navigate their everyday lives
15% of the population live with some form of disability. Reliable and detailed accessibility information helps people with disabilities and their families to plan ahead how to get to an unfamiliar location and, by that, to live a more confident life.
But everyone benefits from accessibility: people with strollers, the elderly with limited mobility, and also persons with temporary disabilities due to an accident or surgery, even those carrying heavy luggage.
How do we do that?
Our online database of accessible locations is available for everyone for free
With more than 700 location profiles from 23 countries, the Access4you database and mobile application are available for everyone for free. Based on 1,000 criteria determined by the perspectives of the 8 concerned groups, we provide filterable and detailed data, including sizes and photos of each location.
How does it help people?
“Thanks to Access4you, I don't experience my disability as a barrier”
"If I want to travel to a hotel, I can look it up in the app, and it will tell me where it is located, how many accessible rooms it has, and thanks to the detailed surveys, it will also tell me how to navigate inside, what facilities it has, and whether it is suitable for my needs. Thanks to Access4you, I don't experience my disability as a barrier or as a challenge in everyday life, but it helps me to live my everyday life as naturally as everyone else."

How does it help businesses?
Good for business, benefit for society
Certified accessibility information helps companies in many ways:
- It brings measurable S into the ESG strategies.
- Being more available and inclusive means more costumers, and more tenants while it elevates brands with real social impact.
- It can also address labor shortages and improve employee retention.
