For Those Who Are Wheelchair Users or Have Mobility Difficulties

Do...

  • Reserve your own accessible parking bays for Blue Badge holders.

  • Sit down to converse at eye level with someone in a wheelchair.

  • Reserve seats with armrests by the entrance for people who can’t walk far.

  • If people block a wheelchair user’s view, politely ask them to sit down.

  • Make sure the floor is as smooth as possible and there is plenty of room to get a wheelchair through.

Don’t...

  • Don’t lean on a wheelchair or move it unless the user asks you.

  • Rush someone with mobility problems.

  • Assume everyone can stand during songs/readings.

  • Leave heavy doors unattended if a wheelchair/crutch/cane user needs to get through.
