Something to explain what this does

Access audits and disability consultancy from the leading NRAC consultants

We’re experts in disability access. Our accessibility audits are the easiest and most economical way to make sure you not only open up your premises to every visitor, but also meet your obligations under the Equality Act 2010.

We take a common sense approach to disability access too. We’ll highlight lots of significant but inexpensive changes – so improving your accessibility can cost a lot less than you imagine.

How we can help

Disability access
For us, it’s personal

Each of our Access Auditors and NRAC Consultants has personal experience of disability, giving them a unique insight into access problems.

That’s why organisations across the government, health care, education, social housing, charities, public transport and retail sectors trust us to get it right, and we work closely with clients to find the most cost-effective way to implement disability access.
