Every year, Disabled Access Day serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of inclusivity and accessibility for people with disabilities. This global event, celebrated annually, brings together communities, businesses, and organisations to raise awareness and advocate for positive change. In this blog, we'll delve into the significance of Disabled Access Day, its impact on learners, and how various organisations, including The Mandatory Training Group, support this important initiative.

Understanding disabled access

Disabled access refers to the provision of facilities and services that enable people with disabilities to navigate and participate fully in society. This includes physical accommodations such as ramps, elevators, and accessible toilets, as well as inclusive policies and practices.
