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 walkthrough of a newly created public building.

Accessible Wales prides itself on having a team of three highly experienced access 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.

Our Access Consultancy Services aim to provide clients with a user-friendly working document offering recommendations categorised by 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 improve their accessibility, in turn working towards a more inclusive environment.

The Equality Act 2010 requires 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
