Blue Badge Style

Blue Badge Style ensures that wherever you go or whatever you do it is a positive, cool, fashionable and elegant experience. Whether Able Bodied or not. Fiona Jarvis established this site in 2007.

That was 20 years ago and today she uses a wheel chair to glide through life. 'I have always refused to give up being stylish, whether that's eating in smart restaurants, wearing elegant clothes or going on glamorous holidays'. Style and disability are not mutually exclusive and Blue Badge Style can help you to have a positive, cool, elegant experience. As Coco Chanel said, "fashion fades, only style remains the same".

After spending hours of their time making enquiries about access at places they wanted to go, the duo realised that they could not be alone in their search for disabled access information. This idea became Euan's Guide, a digital charity that is helping to open up towns and cities to disabled people everywhere.
