Our hut is accessible to all, regardless of ability, gender, sexual preference,
race, religion or age. There is a ramp for wheelchair access at the front
of the building and a disabled toilet. The toilets are for all and are not
age or gender assigned. There are no steps or raised thresholds between areas
in the building. Currently the fire escape has a raised threshold and a step
down but we are looking into how to correct this. Accoustically the building
has a lot of refective surfaces which could give problems for hearing impaired
but we are also looking into how to correct this too.
