Parking and transport
Many disabled people need to plan their journeys in advance and in more detail to ensure they are able to reach their destinations in good time. The proximity of public transport links, availability of accessible buses and taxis, setting down points and parking can be critical components in ensuring they can arrive and return safely and easily.
Getting about outside
It is vital that disabled people can identify and reach their intended destination independently and without risk, this means considering the overall accessibility of your external paths, walkways and seating areas that feature around your training venue.
Information and communication
Good signage and assistive technology can ensure information is communicated effectively to disabled people. Consider the text font you use in your promotional material, are your signs universally recognisable? If you are catering for participants with hard of hearing is a hearing loop installed/available? Access for All Guernsey has more information on this in their Hints & Tips section
Come on in
Providing access to buildings such as the club house, changing rooms or café areas enable disabled people to participate fully in sport and the social aspects of being a club member.
