Glasgow Access Panel - Improving Access For All

Why Do I Need an Access Audit?

It is a duty for employers and service providers under the Equality Act 2010 to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ to accommodate disabled people and prevent discrimination.

The definition of ‘reasonable adjustment’ itself is open to interpretation; however, the Glasgow Access Panel team have many years of professional experience and knowledge in this realm to help you navigate these issues appropriately and in line with current legislation.

Our access reports highlight any issues that a disabled person is likely to face in and around your premises or in using your services, and provide clear recommendations on how to rectify them, allowing you to take the steps needed to fulfil your legal obligation to all disabled people.

It is often the case that a few small, inexpensive changes can have a great impact on a venue’s accessibility.
