How it works

Designed to streamline the process of communicating your access needs, the Access Card translates your disability or impairment into easy-to-understand symbols. This section explains how you can use the card to convey your access requirements to venues and service providers, ensuring a more accessible and enjoyable experience wherever you go.

In addition to translating your needs into symbols, the Access Card serves as a recognised proof of your requirements, eliminating the need for repeated explanations at different venues. This recognition is crucial in building a more inclusive environment, as it encourages venues and service providers to be proactive in their accessibility efforts. The card not only supports your individual needs but also contributes to a broader movement towards better accessibility for all.
