Everyday Access Solutions workshop

for community centres, arts venues, visitor attractions and other broad-use spaces

“I didn’t know what to expect. Thought I would feel out of my depth, but the training was very easy to follow, clear and I felt like everyone was in the same boat. Cannot recommend it enough.” Ella Charles, General Manager Bristol Folk House

People often think that Access begins and ends with ramps for wheelchair users, but there’s so much you can do to make your spaces and services more accessible – AND it doesn’t need to cost the earth or take up all your time!

There are no delegates training sessions available at the moment but if you are interested in attending a future workshop, or hosting one, please just drop me an email or get in touch on 0775 155 2416 if you prefer.

The sessions focus on a practical, basics-first approach to Everyday Access, and you can easily tailor it to your own venue or centre.

Together we will:

build confidence ✓ increase awareness ✓ improve accessibility for your visitors ✓ broaden your visitor base ✓

We can talk about lots of low- and no-cost everyday solutions, as well as suggestions that you can develop over time. It’s delivered in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere, helping you to work towards improving the experience of all D/deaf and disabled people visiting or working in your centre.

We cover:

  • The Equality Act 2010 and your responsibilities as service providers, types of Discrimination, the Social Model of Disability, and Reasonable Adjustments

  • Marketing and communications – simple solutions!
  • Accessible booking policies and procedures
  • Front of House – empowering our frontline teams
  • Participant-led venue accessibility assessment
  • Step-by-step guidance and detailed resources

Let’s work together to make sure Access & Inclusivity Matters in your organisation!

“I found the workshop very informative and illuminating. Running a small community centre I realise there is a lot to do to make it more inclusive and accessible. However, I feel more confident with a new level of awareness about the issues. “ Michele Tedder, Director, Tango West Redland Club

“Thank you for all the information from today. Left feeling we could make some really simple yet effective changes going forward. Great to assess what we already do well. The additional resources and suggestions will also be really useful in going forward with a plan or making improvements and the workbook will be a great resource to keep and use to train others.” Workshop participant, Malcolm X Community Centre
