RANGERS can today publish the findings of our recent Disability Equality Survey, a first of its kind published by a Scottish club.
The survey, which forms a key part of the club’s Fan Engagement Strategy, was carried out across all season ticket holders and MyGers members, with over 900 disabled people taking part.
The aim of the survey was to gather information to assist the club to understand the number of disabled people who attend matches, to gain a better understanding of the needs of our disabled supporters and to gather feedback on the services and facilities currently provided by the club.
Over 40 per-cent of respondents highlighted the biggest benefit and improvement requested was the access to accessible toilets. The club is committed to investing heavily in the Copland and Broomloan Stands this summer to increase accessible toilet provision.
This is in addition to upgrades of all toilet facilities at the stadium for the benefit of all supporters. Planned work will also include upgrades to stadium lifts, improving disabled access and the expansion of matchday support, led by Disability Access Officer, John Spiers.
He commented: “The club is delighted to share the results of this survey with our supporters. This is the first time that we have engaged directly with disabled supporters on this scale and there was a fantastic response.
“The results will inform the development of an action to plan to address the issues raised. We intend to carry out regular surveys that will form an important part of our commitment to providing the most accessible services and facilities as possible.”
