Making a community centre more accessible – a post Covid activity

Hello everyone:
Each month I will be responding to a question; chosen from a pool of some of
the most commonly asked ones that I have been asked over the years and
continue to be asked.
This month, I’d like to answer the following question:
Making a community centre more accessible

No harm in preparing for a return to normalcy

Before you say no or turn thumbs down on these suggestions; consider these
thoughts.
You can definitely increase your revenue and reduce both your internal and
external costs and here’s how.

Take it from me! I have been an accessibility awareness consultant and
advisor since 1998 and I continue to help companies to increase their
revenues, reduce their costs, and reach hidden consumer markets!

We have some very basic and potent tips for you and hopefully they can help
you to increase visitors to your community centre.

* Ensure that your centre is accessible in that it is well located on
central bus routes, is not too far from the street and that it is easily
identified through signs that are easy to spot.

* That if there are parking lots, that they are easily accessible and that
blind and vision impaired persons can easily navigate through them.

* That there are ramps located in appropriate places, that sidewalks are
clear, and that it is easy to find the entrance.

* that hallways are easy to find, doors and stairs are easy to identify, and
that elevators are easy to locate.

* that tables and chairs are arranged in a manner that enables those with
canes, walkers, and wheelchairs to have easy access to them and that there
is enough room for them to maneuver their mobile advise.

This should be a good start.
