Why Accessibility Matters

We are your local user-led Disability Confident Leader, which means we encourage and support other businesses to become an inclusive, disability, and Deaf-friendly business. We do this through the delivery of quality training, services, and products, designed and delivered by people with lived experience of disability.

We work across the South West raising awareness through delivering access audits, Deaf awareness and disability equality training, and specific high-quality courses to voluntary, public, and private organisations.

We have worked with a range of clients including The Environment Agency, Devon County Council, The Learning and Skills Council, and the Royal Albert Museum.
