Why Do I Need DDA Audit?

As a business owner, you might have heard of the term DDA audit but may not be entirely sure what it is and why you need one. We will walk you through everything you need to know about disabled access audits, including what they are, and why you need one.

What is a DDA Audit?

The Equality Act 2010 (formerly the Disability Discrimination Act or DDA), is a law passed in the UK that makes it illegal to discriminate against people with disabilities in the workplace and in society. The audit is an assessment of a business’s premises, policies, and procedures to ensure they are compliant with the Equality Act and accessible to people with disabilities.

Disabled access audits identify barriers that may prevent people with disabilities from accessing a business’s services, premises, or open space. Factors such as the layout of the premises, the availability of accessible parking, and the accessibility of the business’s website.

Take Action Today

We believe

in a world where stress-free disabled access is available to all.

For disabled people simply planning a trip out can be full of stressful possibilities. You might not be able to enter a venue, use the bathroom or navigate freely. Because of this, leaving the house can be a source of huge anxiety for disabled people, leading to isolation, depression and an abundance of issues.

Sadly many establishments, offices and buildings claim they are accessible for the disabled when they aren’t. We’re working towards a world where disabled access is at the forefront of everyone’s minds so the disabled community can enjoy their day-to-day lives without accessibility fears.

The three founders of Access Rating are all disabled businessmen who have been navigating the tricky world of disability access their whole lives. Together, they felt there was a need to create a platform that would allow the very real issues of a lack of access, opportunities and unacceptable facilities to be discussed on a wider scale.

Together, we can do better and be better for the disabled community.

It was a real delight when we were asked to be featured on ITV as part of the programme “Access Denied? Britain’s Mobility Problem”, it highlighted the work we have done and continue to do with The Wildlife Trust.

Disabled people find it disproportionately difficult to find full-time employment. By teaching young people valuable skills through our Employment Hub we can set them up for success in the future. The more access audits we do, the more young people we can help.
