Accessibility in Warrington

The Warrington Access Guide is a living directory of places, services, shops and suppliers in the Warrington area. Each listing has address and contact information, a short description of what it offers, and our assessment of its accessibility. This website is regulary updated by staff and volunteers from Warrington Disability Partnership.

School's Poster Competition

WDP is launching a new competition giving one youngster the chance to have their work featured on a Golden Square Shopping Centre shop front as the charity prepares to celebrate its 25th birthday. The competition to design a poster for the WDP on the theme of positive images of disability is now open, and under 18s are being asked to get creative on a piece that focusses on what disabled people can do rather than can’t for example sports, working, or just going about their day-to-day life.

Access Audits from the WAG team

The purpose of an access audit is to establish how well a building performs in relation to access and ease of use by a wide range of users, whether it is physical or sensory impairments. The access audit is the first “reasonable step” in the consideration of a disabled accessible building.

Here at Warrington Disability Partnership we believe that buildings should be accessible and for a reasonable price we can turn your building into a fully disabled accessible building. If you have any access related problems that you would like friendly and professional help and guidance with.
