Access Auditing and Advice
If you’re looking to capitalise on the benefits of inclusive design, as well as ensure your organisation is meeting its legal obligations, then we can help.
We offer a range of services, all of which provide a unique insight into the barriers faced by people with a variety of impairments, including physical, sensory loss and learning difficulties, when accessing and using your building or service. These are accompanied by realistic solutions to removing these barriers.
We offer something to suit every budget including:
- Walk, Wheel & Talk Service
Our Access Advisor can visit your premises and give feedback on all aspects of its accessibility. You’re welcome to take notes and we can help you prioritise any action points to form your Access Statement.
£75 per hour or £420 a full day.
- Customer Audit
Our Access Advisor can visit your premises with a group of disabled people who represent a full range of impairments to give feedback on its accessibility in relation to the personal barriers they experience. Participants' impairments will include hearing loss, sight loss, mobility difficulties and wheelchair users. All feedback will be collated into a summary report for you, with actions prioritised using a simple colour-coded system.
- Access Audit
Our Access Audits are carried out by an NRAC (National Register of Access Consultants) registered architect. Members of NRAC are subject to rigorous assessment by the CAE (Centre for Accessible Environments) before receiving accreditation. As an architect, our Auditor is able to offer practical and feasible recommendations in relation to alterations of the physical features of a building. All areas are fully assessed and recommendations are provided by means of a detailed report. Following the advice recommended within an Access Audit will minimise risk of potential litigation due to poor access.
This is a bespoke service, please contact us with your requirements for a quote.
We found the Access Audit really helpful. It was clear, easy to read and made some good recommendations which we’ve incorporated into our project.
Harvey's Foundry Trust
The workshop and report provided really useful ideas, which helped us to improve the project at the design stage. This will help ensure the scheme is accessible and enjoyed by everyone. I look forward to working with you again.
