Empowering people with disabilities for over 25 years
Heritage Ability

Helping heritage sites become more accessible to disabled people and Deaf people who use British Sign Language

Heritage Ability is a project designed to support heritage sites to become more accessible.  It is delivered by Living Options Devon and operates across the South-West, with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Our vision is:
As a result of Heritage Ability, disabled and Deaf people with their families and friends will have meaningful, inspiring and life-enriching engagements with the South West’s rich and varied heritage.  The region’s heritage sector will be supported to develop a sustainable disability and Deaf friendly culture, improve their visitor experiences and become more resilient.

About Us

Living Options Devon is a well respected user-led organisation which works to ensure that people with disabilities and Deaf people can live the life they choose. Set up in 1990 LOD is a registered charity (Charity N0. 1102489) and a company limited by guarantee (No. 4925281). Based in Exeter and Barnstaple, our charitable aims mean we we can offer services across the South West and share good practice throughout the UK. Being led and run by people with disabilities and Deaf people ensures LOD has first hand knowledge and understanding of the issues facing service users and so is very well placed to increase the influence and voice of Deaf and disabled people. We do this by providing education, training and services which enable people to live the lives they choose.

We are happy to provide all information about Living Options Devon and its projects in alternative formats by request. Please contact us using the details above.
