The Champions – Top 10 Tips Short Film
The Champions is a project run by and for young disabled people in Merseyside. The project saw a group of young people visit various venues across the Liverpool City region to review their quality of access as well as various other criteria including the facilities on offer and even how friendly they were.
The group worked with volunteers and staff from DaDaFest, Merseyside Youth Association and Sandfield Park School to develop a blogging site which they then populated with reviews and images. It also provides venues in the city with a platform to assess themselves and find ways of improving.

The project was a collaboration between DaDaFest, Merseyside Youth Association, Sandfield Park School, Aigburth High School & Redbridge High School.
