Access All Areas - Accessibility Workshop

Thursday 30th March

1.30 - 4pm at Totally Sustainable, Pencader

 

Accessibility isn't all about providing ramps - it's about providing information, giving good customer service and offering facilities that mean that your business is ready to give a warm welcome to all visitors, and that disabled visitors are able to make informed decisions and know what to expect if they choose to visit you.

Over 10 million people in Britain have a disability. This is a huge target market that could be visiting your business. Formulating an Access Statement gives you an opportunity to take positive steps to engage with this often neglected market sector - and of course helps you meet the legal requirement under the Equality Act 2010 to consider disability access to your premises.  

This workshop will cover:

  1. Learn how legislation affects your business 
  2. Identify who needs an Access Statement and where it should be shown 
  3. Why have an Access Statement (5 good reasons plus business benefits) 
  4. How to put together a bespoke Access Statement for your business, making it compliant with the 2010 Equality Act            
  5. Create an Access Statement to enhance your marketing both on and off line.

 

Location:

This workshop will be held at Totally Sustainable - an independent energy hub which showcases green building practices and alternative sustainable technologies. Their location at the old school house in Pencader has been carefully renovated and is now one of Wales’ most sustainable properties. 


 

Trainer:

This workshop will be led by Vivien Young, Equality & Diversity Advisor for Business Wales.


 Cost:

£10 per person
