The Disability Discrimination Act 2002 requires equal opportunities be given to all people. For churches the following are probably most relevant:-
- Easy Access (level if possible)
- Accessible toilets
- Good signage
- Sound reinforcement
- Adequate lighting
It may also be appropriate to consider the types of teaching materials used and whether provision should be made for those with special needs.
Grants to assist in the cost of provision of such facilities may be available. For further information or advice.
