Disability and Accessibility

Practical ways to make your venue more inclusive and accessible

The Church of England in Birmingham is committed to providing an environment that will promote, protect and ensure the full and equal enjoyment of all human rights and fundamental freedoms by all persons with disabilities, and to promote respect for their inherent dignity.

A person’s disability can present itself in many different ways. Some are external and use scooters, frames and walking sticks; others are more hidden; including hearing and sight problems, Dementia, heart conditions, mental health issues and many others.

We want to make sure that everyone is considered. Small changes can make a big difference in creating a space that is more accessible and welcoming for all.
