CU Leader Resources

Making your CU accessible - wheelchair users

You may be restricted in your choice of venue.  But if you want to be fully inclusive, ask your SU to help allocate an accessible venue for your meetings – they should be committed to improving access and diversity.

Many wheelchair users have learned to be adaptable and to overcome obstacles with good humour.  But with the best will in the world, if a venue doesn’t have level access, they can’t get in.  But once enabled to belong to your CU, many wheelchair users will be enthusiastic about using their talents to serve and help in what you are doing.
