The ground floor of GAS (currently consists of toilets, main hall, wood workshop, print workshop and library) have stair free access. Rather than say if GAS is 'accessible' or 'not accessible' we have put together a video that takes you on a tour of the space and demonstrates how to gain access via stair free routes. It also shows other elements of the space such as
- Explaining how to let yourself into GAS (this is unfortunately currently not possible for people who need stair free access)
- The internal stairs that lead to the kitchen and meeting room
- The handrails and space available in the toilets
- The general feel of the space
Please do get in touch with us over email or facebook if you would like to view the accessibility video or speak to someone in more detail.
GAS can be cold, but we are currently awaiting the installation of heaters in the main space which should help with this.
One group, who are led by disabled people, gave us the following perspective on the accessibility of the space
"In terms of accessibility we were impressed by the space, rails in the toilet and ramp that means a disabled person could access and participate. however as we have disabled organisers, and the main shutter cannot open from the outside, It isn't possible for us to host our sessions in the space. Thankyou for the lovely food, wishing GAS all the best."
We hope that this information will help you in weighing up whether the space would work for you or your group. We are also aware that there are many facets to accessibility and ways to support people to feel welcome in the space. We will do our best to cater to whatever would work best for you or your event so please do get in touch and explore options with us.
We really value feedback so please do get in touch.
