1. Be aware of the DDA and begin to take positive steps to ensure your club, service or facility is accessible
2. Consult with local disabled people through access groups, disability sport forums, disability organisations, etc.
3. The club could facilitate or commission a basic access audit. The latter is a detailed inspection and may be undertaken by an access auditor. An access audit highlights the barriers for disabled people and offers practical solutions
Draw up an access plan to be stored with other documentation acting on the results of the audit, which shows how and when the plan will be implemented
Look at funding opportunities i.e. Awards For All, Local Authority, Lottery Funds, etc.
Provide or commission Disability Awareness Training for staff/coaches and volunteers Consider marketing/promotion of the club. Clubs could look to provide auxiliary aids or services to help disabled people, such as a hearing loop, large print promotional material, use of audio tape or other media
