Access Kensington and Chelsea
Access Kensington and Chelsea Project
by Action Disability Kensington and Chelsea
Venues in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea have made great efforts in providing accessible mainstream services for disabled residents and users, but with many fine old and listed buildings this can pose a challenge.
As part of an initiative to improve information on what venues and services are accessible, Members of Action Disability Kensington & Chelsea's Access Group have worked to find and rate the most accessible places in the borough. Working with a member generated list of services, the Access Group inspected and rated locations across the borough and the resulting audit was collated into seven categories of venues/services that support disabled people's independence and social inclusion.
The most accessible venue in each category was then awarded a certificate in the Kensington & Chelsea Access Awards ceremony, presented by the Mayor of Kensington and Chelsea.
