We know that what is accessible for one person is not always accessible for another, this is why we consulted people with a broad range of access needs including physical, hearing, visual and sensory, to develop a more comprehensive system for assessing and communicating accessibility.
The traditional International Symbol of Access has been used since it’s inception in 1969 to denote areas with increased accessibility for wheelchair users. In 2023 we recognise that the population of people with a disability and their access needs are, in the most part, not represented by this symbol with around 4% of disabled people being wheelchair users.
Our Access at a Glance symbols focus not on disabilities but on accessible attributes and features, allowing people with a disability to quickly and easily assess whether a space meets their particular needs.

We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, as the Traditional Custodians of this land, with deep respect. May Elders, past and present, be blessed and honoured. May we join together and build a future based on compassion, justice, hope, faith, and reconciliation. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples should be aware that this website may contain images or names of people who have since passed away.
