Euan’s Guide, the Edinburgh-based disabled access review website founded by powerchair user Euan MacDonald, has been shortlisted in the ‘Digital Charity of the Year’ category of the Digital Leaders 100 Awards.
The digital charity and website aims to “‘remove the fear of the unknown’ and inspire people to try new places” by opening “up towns and cities to disabled people everywhere”.
The Digital Leaders 100 list was launched in 2013 as a new way to recognise individuals and organisations who demonstrate a pioneering and sustainable approach to digital transformation across the public, private and non-profit sectors.

Euan MacDonald, Co-Founder of Euan’s Guide, said:
“Euan’s Guide couldn’t be happier to be recognised among this list of digital pioneers. It wouldn’t have been possible without our amazing reviewers, and we’re delighted that the website is making a huge difference for disabled people, their families and friends.”
Lord Francis Maude of Horsham, Chair of Digital Leaders, said:
“The Digital Leaders 100 list 2017 is once again highlighting the progress that has been made in digitally transforming the UK across all sectors. It’s great to see such a strong list from outside London this year reflecting our own National programme and the growing importance that digital transformation has in organisations irrespective of size or sector.”
The 100 shortlisted candidates are voted on both by the public and a judging panel. Visit the Digital Leaders 100 website to vote for Euan’s Guide.
