If the accessible venues listing document is required in an alternative format, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org)
Please note that this listing focuses on access for mobility limitations i.e. access to lifts, ramps, and accessible toilets. Organisers will also need to consider other disability access issues as relevant e.g. provisions for participants who are hearing or vision impaired.
To assist staff ensure that their functions and events are inclusive of people with disabilities, a guide to accessible events has been developed and is available on the accessible events webpage.
A recommended way to ensure access is properly catered for is to include a way for attendees to register their specific needs. Suggested wording for event invitations and promotion is: "If you have any disability access or support requirements in order to participate, please let us know when you RSVP." Always include a telephone and email contact for disability-related enquiries.
