The finding: a lack of information on the accessibility of premises

How does a person with a disability know if he or she will be able to access the place place to which they wish to visit? In the vast majority of cases, information is either not available on the Internet or is unreliable.

As a result, disabled people - 12 million French people - go out less than others less than others and and find themselves on the sidelines.

Our solution: Acceslibre, the collaborative website for accessibility

Acceslibre's mission is twofold:

  • Create the most complete and up-to-date database of accessibility information accessibility information places open to the public (restaurants, cinemas, pharmacies, administrations...)
  • Disseminate this information as widely as possible on the Internet, particularly on major websites that public places: service-public.fr, allocine.fr...

Ultimately, our aim is to ensure that every time practical information about a information about an establishment on the Internet (address, opening hours, etc.), we also include accessibility information (level access, ramp, adapted toilets, etc.), adapted toilets...)

Our team

We're what's known as a "State Startup". It's a small team that creates a public service to respond to a problem affecting citizens. Our aim is not to make a profit, but to maximize its social and societal impact by responding to users' needs.

Acceslibre is attached to the French Ministry of Ecological Transition.
