Accessibility is a comprehensive concept with the aim to enable persons with different disabilities an equal social participation (inclusion). By creating barrier-free access and usability of buildings, services, information and institutions (such as schools and workplaces), accessibility serves as a prerequisite for inclusion.
The greatest barriers in accessibility are in construction, information and communication barriers. They often occur together. Therefore, accessibility does not only concern buildings, but also for example information material or having a suitable contact partner. Hence it is a cross-cutting issue and requires a comprehensive strategy.
The implementation of accessibility is not only beneficial for persons with disabilities and persons with reduced mobility, but also for you as a business, service provider or employer.
