An Access statement is a description of a business’ facilities and services to inform people with access needs.
Access Statements allow for a written, descriptive approach to providing a wide range of information on accessibility. All areas of a business are described from car parking & arrival to toilets.
Four good reasons to have an Access Statement…
1. Minimum requirement for VisitEngland accommodation
and visitor attraction quality scheme members
2. Can help you to meet your obligations under
the Equality Act 2010
3. Marketing opportunity, informs your visitors in one concise document
4. England's population is ageing and almost 1 in 5 people are disabled
Check out the best practice examples on the right of this page. These examples include all possible sections and may therefore be longer than a typical Access Statement.
