Accessibility Passports Available For Supporters With Disabilities

25 February 2022

As Rochdale Football Club celebrates Level Playing Field’s Weeks of Action, supporters are reminded that Accessibility Passports are available for fans who have a disability.

Introduced earlier this season, the passport, which is already being utilised by a number of supporters, aims to improve the matchday experience for fans with disabilities.

Nicola Toolan, Dale’s Disability Liaison Officer, who introduced the scheme at Rochdale AFC, explains more: “There may be occasions when a supporter may wish to ask a member of the matchday staff for assistance, however they may not, for reasons of privacy, wish to discuss how their disability affects them in a public area, or they may have a communication difficulty, meaning that they encounter problems making their needs known,” said Nicola.

“The accessibility passport, which comes in the form of a card, will mean that the information is written down so that matchday stewards or stadium staff can offer help in a swift manner and offer and assistance or support.”

“I've already received positive feedback from supporters since the introduction of the passports and I hope they can be of use to many more fans between now and the end of season and in the future.”

If a person wishes to obtain a complimentary accessibility passport, they can do so by contacting Nicola Toolan, the club’s Disability Liaison Officer.
