Company Profile - Access in Dudley

Access in Dudley was formed in April 2004 and is made up predominantly of disabled people, although ALL are welcome.

The group is a voluntary organisation with company limited by guarantee status, funded by donations, grants and from paid work undertaken by the group.

The group’s main work is around aspects of disability including accessing the built environment, information and information delivery including format types, accessible equipment both for use outside as well as inside the home and many more areas including advice.

A.I.D. also consults with the Primary Care Trust (PCT) and Local Authority on projects like accessible play equipment, upgrading their open spaces and the new market place in Dudley. A sub group meets fortnightly to consider planning applications for public use, commenting on any aspect that does not comply with the needs of people with disabilities based on Part M of the building regulations. We also sometimes talk to and advise developers before a planning application is submitted, working with people like Tesco’s and Centro ,regarding their new bus stations at places like Halesowen and Stourbridge.

Access in Dudley undertakes access audits of both buildings and outside/leisure spaces such as parks, town halls, nature reserves and education buildings or work environments.

Members of A.I.D. also represent our disabled community on many other consultation groups and forums. We also network with other groups, so that we can share knowledge and information as well as views.

As a group that has to operate on a very tight budget, we are constantly looking for income opportunities and to that end we are able to offer the following services for a nominal fee:



  • Access walk & talk audits

  • Disability Awareness Training

  • Information production in alternate formats including some training

  • Audio & Braille

  • Other services on request
