Accessibility for all

We place a high priority on creating an inclusive environment where everyone, regardless of their personal characteristics, can participate equally.

Our Inclusion and Diversity Officer

Is a focal point for access issues throughout the borough whose role is to raise awareness of accessibility issues by:

  • working with local groups including the Disability Forum for Basingstoke and District to develop new ways to improve access
  • supporting the Access 4 All Working Group to give advice and guidance on improving access to buildings and services

For further information contact the Inclusion and Diversity Officer by emailing, or phoning 01256 845325.

The Disability Forum

Is an organisation of and for disabled people, providing a forum:

  • to share concerns
  • to assess existing services
  • to plan new services
  • to ensure that disabled people have a voice in decisions that affect them.

If you have a personal interest in disability because you are disabled, you are a carer or have a professional interest, the Disability Forum would be happy to welcome you to the group.

Access 4 All Working Group (A4AWG)

Is an independent voluntary group, which liaises with the 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
