Make sure than any notices or circulars announcing the event are in suitable formats or brought to the attention of all members.
Not all public transport is accessible to wheelchair users. Ensure that your venue is not inaccessible to such members due to a lack of public transport links.
If members with mobility impairments drive to an event, it is essential that they can park nearby.
Look at the routes from parking areas and/or transport facilities.
How many reserved places for disabled drivers are there?
Are they conveniently located?
Are spaces wide enough (minimum width of 3200mm)?
Once members reach the venue, they must be able to get inside, and move around freely between the areas where the event will be held.
Are staff available to assist/guide disabled people, if required?
Members with visual impairments may have some vision, which will be helped if the lighting is well designed. Also, be aware of the needs of any members with photosensitive epilepsy.
If members have guide or hearing dogs, these need to be provided with appropriate facilities throughout the event. Local Guide Dogs associations can sometimes be of assistance.
