Making Your Venue Inclusive: The Power of Disability Access Audit

In today’s world, creating an inclusive environment is no longer optional. It’s a moral and legal imperative. This is especially true for organisations that operate public buildings or venues. Fortunately, a disability access audit can be a powerful tool to identify and address accessibility barriers, ensuring everyone feels welcome and can participate.

Unveiling Accessibility Issues Through Disability Access Audits

A disability access audit is a comprehensive assessment of a building or venue’s accessibility for people with disabilities. It goes beyond physical limitations, considering the needs of those with sensory or cognitive impairments as well. Our audits meticulously evaluate your space from the perspective of a disabled visitor, pinpointing areas that may hinder their experience.

Benefits of Disability Access Audits: Beyond Compliance

Disability access audits offer a multitude of benefits that extend far beyond legal compliance with regulations like the Equality Act 2010 and Building Regs. Here’s how they can empower your organisation:

  • Attract a Wider Audience: By removing accessibility barriers, you open your doors to a significant and often overlooked demographic – disabled people and their loved ones. This translates to increased footfall and potential revenue.
  • Enhanced Brand Reputation: Demonstrating a commitment to inclusion fosters a positive brand image and positions your organisation as a leader in social responsibility.
  • Prioritised Action Plan: Our detailed reports provide clear recommendations and prioritised action steps, guiding you towards creating a more accessible environment with efficient resource allocation.
  • Funding and Grant Opportunities: A comprehensive disability access audit report can strengthen your application for accessibility improvement grants or funding.
