Ian Stevens

Having served as a Police Officer in Great Britain for 27 years, Ian Stevens migrated to Australia in 2007. When he migrated, he turned his attention to another kind of “service industry.” In order to gain further qualifications, he spent the next four years studying. First was in Youth Work and then Disability Services (along with other short courses deemed relevant). Ian worked in the Tourism Industry in Australia for just over five years as a volunteer tour guide (ongoing), working with several of the major tourist attractions in the Sydney Area—such as the Taronga Zoo, Power House Museum and The Australian National Maritime Museum. When giving tours, Ian not only focuses on imparting historical and cultural knowledge, but he also focuses on the needs of people who may not be as quick on their feet as they would like to be—in which he has found his niche in “Accessible Tourism.” Following on the idea born out of experiences gained in working with and for local disability service providers, Ian has struck out on his own fledgling micro business in “accessible tourism,” which includes planning, organising and leading outings for both people with a disability and for those folks of more mature years, who might also have restricted mobility. On following very closely with the ethics of the “person-centered approach,” each participant leads the pace and time spent in or around the venue—and each and everyone is valued and treated with respect.
With this approach on tourism and education, tourists are guaranteed to have an enjoyable day, and perhaps will also be able to forge new friendships along the way!
