About TD

About the Accessibility database (TD)

TD is today the only database in Sweden that offers information to residents and visitors about physical accessibility in everyday life. It's about everything from fishing spots, castles and hotels to health centers and libraries.

TD creates new conditions

TD spreads knowledge that small measures can create accessible environments. In the case of major interventions and redevelopments, municipalities as well as companies must reflect on accessibility when changing premises and procurements of various kinds.

Lack of accessibility means discrimination. Working with accessibility leads to increased health, democracy and participation for the residents.

TD helps to generate significant human and economic benefits.

TD's background

TD was originally developed in 2005 by Region Västra Götaland, the West Sweden Tourist Board, the collective disability movement in West Sweden in collaboration with companies and municipalities in Västra Götaland. Through its financial support, Arvsfonden has made TD's development possible. Both regional and national disability organizations have participated in this work.
