Ahead of this Saturday’s designated matchday for 2018 Level Playing Field’s Weeks of Action, we are pleased to announce that as part of Luton Town’s ongoing commitment to improving access for our disabled supporters, Induction Loop Systems are now available at a range of LTFC venues.
The loops help amplify sound in hearing aids, therefore making it easier for hard of hearing supporters to hear more clearly when using the club’s facilities.
This service is now available in both club shops (at Kenilworth Road and the Mall), the Ticket Office and the main reception.
For users, this can be found by changing the setting on your hearing aid to the T position and can be used in areas where the sign above can be found.
The annual LPF Weeks of Action initiative, now in its 13th year, runs from March 3rd-18th and aims to celebrate access and inclusion for disabled sports fans across England and Wales.
Disabled people constitute the largest minority group at around 15 per cent of the population, and this number is increasing year on year. Naturally, a large number of disabled people are football fans too and we are pleased to take this opportunity to thank our own disabled fans for their continued loyalty and dedication to this great club.
We continue to work closely with our own Disabled Supporters' Association and should you wish to contact them about any relevant issues then please email LTDSA@lutontown.co.uk
This Weeks of Action campaign we are joining together with sports clubs, fans and organisations across England and Wales to celebrate the #OurMatchday to not only promote the positive experience had by disabled fans but also the message of access and inclusion for all.
Alternatively you may wish to send a message of support to @lpftweets on Twitter using the hashtag #OurMatchday
