Disability Access Audits

We offer advice to service providers with regard to meeting the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 1995 and 2005.

We also offer DDA Access Audit and Access Appraisal assessments of existing buildings to help organisations identify potential liabilities and to develop comprehensive access improvement strategies.

A DDA Access Audit is a way of assessing an existing building, or proposals for a new building, against pre-defined criteria. The pre-defined criteria are designed to measure the 'usability' of the building for a particular client group.

The results of an audit are normally prepared in a written report giving a detailed assessment against the agreed criteria together with detailed recommendations for the improvements required. These recommendations can be given priorities and can be costed if required by us.

The assessment of a building is known as a ‘DDA Access Audit'. Which, once completed will describe the liability of the organisation under the Disability Discrimination Act (1995) & (2005) and other related legislation.


Our access auditor has a detailed knowledge of the environmental needs of disabled people and can carry out an in depth audit based upon the difficulties caused by the built environment. Knowledge of particular disabilities is important as is the recognition that physical, sensory and cognitive impairments are equally important .
