The Glancynon Inn, Hirwaun, one of our first access clients

Accessible Wales Access Consultancy service aims to help clients address access issues they may be facing.  This service may be as small as writing a brief access review for a small local shop or carrying out full access management of a newly created public building.

Accessible Wales prides itself on having a team of four highly experienced auditors with a wealth of knowledge about accessibility.  This knowledge not only includes a firm understanding of building regulations, legislation and best practice but extends to a personal hands on understanding.

Accessible Wales’ Access Consultancy Services aim to provide clients with a user-friendly working document offering recommendations listed in high, medium and low priority (both in terms of potential cost and expected impact of change.  Testimonials can be found on our Testimonials page.

Accessible Wales’ Access Consultancy Services offers clients a document that they can use to form a plan of action when making access improvements.  Once an audit or review is completed clients can work through the action points which in turn should raise the reputation of our clients and improve their accessibility, in turn working towards a more inclusive environment which is easier for everyone to use.

As of 1st October 2004, Part III of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 required businesses and other public buildings to make reasonable adjustments to become accessible to disabled people.  This may mean to remove, alter or provide a reasonable means of avoiding physical features of a building which make access impossible or unreasonably difficult for disabled people.

Examples include:

  • Installing a ramp to coincide with steps
  • Providing larger, well defined signs for people with a visual impairment
  • Lowering counters for wheelchair users or people who are short in stature
