The association 'Tourisme & Handicaps,' created on 28 February 2001, aims to raise awareness among tourism professionals concerning services for disabled people in tourism and entertainment facilities and to implement and manage measures making it possible to promote policies that would further these services.
The 'Tourisme & Handicap' label was created at the nationwide level: its role is to provide reliable, descriptive and objective information concerning the accessibility of tourist sites and facilities, by taking four types of disabilities (auditory, mental, visual and motor) into account. It also serves to develop tourist services that are adapted and integrated into the general range of tourist services available. The main types of targeted facilities include accommodations, restaurants, cultural sites (museums, monuments, etc.) and entertainment venues.
