ACCESS: Your Building: Beyond Ramps and Toilets

Wednesday 13 February 2019 

11.00am to 5.30pm

In this session, we will look beyond big, expensive capital projects and focus instead on action-planning for smaller, more achievable changes. The session will equip you to take a tour of your building(s), spot some of the main barriers that D/deaf and disabled people face and remove them. 

Delegates need to attend Disability Equality & Unconscious Bias: Foundation before attending this or any of the following modules.
