Baxter Hall Charity new accessible facilities with a grant from the Leicestershire Fund

The Baxter Hall Charity

The Baxter Hall Charity received a grant from the Leicestershire Fund that has helped them make the hall more accessible for disabled users. The grant paid for an accessibility audit, then alterations were made and necessary equipment installed to create accessible toilet facilities which included a much-needed baby changing unit. Further improvements around the Hall included clearer signage, banisters fitted at steps, a storage room and chairs with arms which make it easier for people to sit down and stand up again.

The grant also paid for staff to attend accessibility training, increasing their awareness of accessibility issues, and health and safety.
