Situation

Access issues into the Centre. In particular, the number and the mobility issues of people using our day care service are far greater than originally envisaged. The number of activities for young families run here by other groups has increased as more young families have moved into the area. The number of disability groups using the centre has increased. Since we closed our large café facility and elderly lunch club there has been no safe space for frail elderly people or people.

Solution

We are proposing a seven stage project to address these issues whilst reducing the financial risk to the centre. These are phases A to G which can be completed independently as funding allows. Our initial priorities are phases A, C and D (new wheelchair ramp and reception area). A - New access ramp B - Meeting room specifically equipped for disability groups C - Public lobby, reception desk and coffee corner D - Removal of existing reception E - Internal ramp and new seating area.
