What people are saying about Access and Inclusivity Matters

Everyday Access Solutions workshop, 2018

“Trish delivered an interesting and engaging session, outlining the challenges organisations face in meeting the needs of customers with disabilities, providing cost-effective, realistic solutions to everyday problems which are often overlooked. Very thought-provoking.”Adam Green, Operations Manager, Spike Island

“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

“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

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. As ever, it will be a question of prioritising what can be done and when.” Michele Tedder, Director, Tango West Redland Club
