What benefits do Access Panels bring?

Access Panels can help their communities in lots of ways including:

  • Creating a better physical environment for all;
  • Assisting local authorities, public bodies and designers meet their statutory obligations;
  • Promoting full social inclusion;
  • Empowering all members of the community;
  • Keeping access issued to the fore.

Whilst much of our activities are about access to places, such as shops, public buildings, restaurants and leisure facilities, we are also interested in improving access to healthcare, employment, education and transport.
