Access Audits, Training and Consultancy
Including British Sign Language accredited courses
We work across the South West raising awareness through delivering access audits, Deaf awareness training, disability equality training, disability and diversity consultancy and specific high quality courses to a variety of voluntary, public and private organisations. We have worked with a range of clients including The Environment Agency, Exeter International Airport, Devon County Council, The Learning and Skills Council, the Police and Fire services, the Royal Albert Museum and Dartmoor National Park Authority.
The most beneficial aspect of our service is that it is delivered by disabled people who live the life and are the best people to be able to advise on the subject of disability-linked issues.
We have qualified and experienced auditors who are able to complete comprehensive access audits on buildings, sites and open spaces. For more information please click here.

The single biggest barrier facing people with a hearing loss is difficulty with communication and understanding what is being said. The See Hear Centre runs lipreading classes in Bideford on Mondays and Wednesdays. This is not just about learning the skills to lipread, it’s also about meeting and sharing experiences in an environment where everybody understands how your hearing loss affects your everyday life.
Person-centred planning is a way of letting other people know what is important to you and what your ideal life would be like. For more information please click here.
