Access 4 All Working Group

Access 4 All Working Group (A4AWG) is an independent voluntary group, which liaises with Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council. Members of the Working Group have an interest in disability issues because they have a disability themselves or because they know or work with disabled people. A4AWG is a relatively small group of volunteers who seek to make the local environment fully and equally accessible for all, taking into account the needs of people with various disabilities and impairments. If you are interested in joining the group, please email
