Support the petition for Welsh Government to bring in an ‘Access Certificate’

Share this article

Bridgend Coalition of Disabled People have set up an e-Petition to call for all premises in Wales to be awarded an Access Certificate number similar to the Food Hygiene Certificate.

They are calling for the Welsh Government to bring in an “Access Certificate” showing numbers from zero to five along the lines of the Food Hygiene Certificate. All buildings used by the public such as shops, food outlets, sports clubs, pubs and offices as well as public transport services should be assessed on how wheelchair accessible they are, as well as how easy it is for someone with a sensory impairment or learning disability to use. 

They want all premises to be given a number which they could then display to show how disabled friendly their premises are. They hope that those who achieve high ratings will possibly persuade other nearby premises to improve access and get a high rating themselves.
