Making events accessible

Choosing a venue: Space and distance to facilities


Try to arrange to use rooms that are as close together as possible.

Key points from people who use services were:

Are corridors wide enough for wheelchairs? There should be enough space in the corridor for me to turn around and pass other people in wheelchairs.

I use a wheelchair and need enough room to be able to move around canteens or restaurants.

Because of my leg [projecting at right angles to the chair] I often find that so-called accessible buildings are not. Lifts are the worst.
