Improving your project for disabled people
Disabled people are under-represented as visitors to many heritage sites, but their expectations are rising and they are increasingly participating in heritage activities. This guidance provides useful tips on how to make your project more accessible and reminds you of your legal obligations not to discriminate against disabled people.
Useful for… Any applicants to any of our grant programmes who want to make it easier for disabled people to participate in heritage and particularly those who want to reach out to disabled people as a new audience.
