Disability Access Surveys

What you need to know:

The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 1995 & the Disability Discrimination Act 2005 require service providers to make reasonable adjustments for disabled people. A service provider is required to take reasonable steps to:

  • change a practice, policy or procedure which makes it impossible or unreasonably difficult for disabled people to make use of its services
  • provide an auxiliary aid or service if it would enable (or make it easier for) disabled people to make use of its services

In addition, where a physical feature makes it impossible or unreasonably difficult for disabled people to make use of services, a service provider has to take reasonable steps to:

  • remove the feature; or
  • alter it so that it no longer has that effect; or
  • provide a reasonable means of avoiding it
  • provide a reasonable alternative method of making the service available

It also prohibits discrimination by private clubs.

What you need to do:

Undertake a survey to establish what, if any, changes are needed to your building in order to comply with this act.

How can we help?

We can survey your premises to identify any areas, relevant to the service you provide, which could potentially prove problematic for anyone with a disability.

We can then advise you about any alterations that would overcome the problem.
