Ability2Access is a UK based registered charity dedicated to education, training, employment & research & development that promotes ability and accessibility to overcome disability. This includes access to education, work, housing, leisure, health provision, transport and democracy. Research is focused on policy and practice that can enhance inclusion through improving the design and management of activities, places and organisations to make them accessible to everyone. This pioneering organisation fosters new ways of thinking and advancing knowledge through partnerships between voluntary organisations, industry, education and government.
Ability 2 Access works to deliver its objectives through collaborating with partners in industry, education and the voluntary sector to design, implement and disseminate relevant research.
We aim to offer work opportunities for students and researchers to work on projects within our research themes, managed by experienced academics and professionals.
We place particular emphasis on innovation in disseminating research findings through interactive media, including supporting training events and consultancy in ‘training the trainers’. Research is also disseminated through publication in academic, professional and industry journals.
