RNIBís access consultancy provides a pan disability service that focuses on improving access to the environments and facilities that disabled people use in their daytoday life.
Drawing on more than 50 years combined experience of delivering disability and access related consultancy, RNIB access consultancy has developed a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the needs of disabled people.
This expertise covers a wide range of areas, including built environment and product and packaging assessment. A significant part of this service is based around our unrivalled appreciation of the specific needs of blind and partially sighted people and we possess unparallelled resources in this area.
Our research and policy activities have kept us at the forefront of the disability field and we regularly consult with our beneficiaries. As a result, RNIB has played an integral role in the creation and modification of many of the main standards and guidance documents in the industry. Our built environment team includes NRAC registered access consultants, who offer access audits and design appraisals for both existing and proposed environments. They are able to provide businesses with extensive details of current and potential issues as well as expert design advice to assist in ensuring comprehensive accessibility and peace of mind for you and your customers.
