Although we are a national organisation, we are comprised of regional groups, some of whom hold meetings.

What can I expect at meetings?

Each group sets its own agenda for meetings and discussions, which is driven by its members.  Some regions meet quarterly, others meet more frequently.  Continuous professional development (CPD) is integral to most meetings and is supported by guest speakers from all areas of access – researchers, campaigners, other professionals and suppliers.  Some groups meet at or visit different places or buildings to explore interesting access features or facilities.

Where is my local group?

Members are usually part of the region where they are based for their professional or voluntary work.  If you would like information about a region contact the Membership Secretary
