free resources for making things accessible

 

You can use any of the resources here as long as you credit One Voice.

They are for anyone who wants to make a service or building or event more accessible.

They are for disabled people who want to help service providers to improve.

We try to keep these documents up to date and relevant, but cannot be held liable for any errors or omissions – this understanding is a condition of you using them.

Product and service tests

 Whenever one of our members or users finds a useful (or disappointing) piece of equipment aimed at disabled people, we ask them to fill in a questionnaire to tell us what it is for, what is good about it, when it doesn’t work, where you can get it, how much it costs etc. We put them all together in this document.

This document is updated roughly every year.

Organising Accessible Meetings and Events 

Many of our members and users wanting to be involved in decisions about their lives found that often meetings and events were organised in a way that created a series of barriers for disabled people.

Their frustration was echoed by a number of community and groups and city officers who did not know how to plan out these difficulties, so we worked with groups of disabled people to put this guidance together.

It helps anyone who wants to hold a meeting or event that is open to all of the public.
