Village halls are often at the centre of community life and as so, stand to the serve the community as a whole. Playing host to a vast array of community groups covering all of the general public, from parent and toddler groups, keep fit classes and amateur dramatic productions and wedding receptions.
Hall committees, trustees or local authority owners, will want to be compliant with the latest Equality Act 2010 making their facilities available to everyone. All too often provisions are made for the more visible disability – mobility, and the invisible disability of hearing impairment is forgotten.
When considering a major refurbishment these halls and buildings, which are classed as a service provider will need to consider what reasonable adjustments can be made. These can be as simple as adding an induction hearing loop to your existing PA system or something a little more complex as funds allow.
Here at Gordon Morris ltd we can help and advise you. We can survey, specify and install a complete package, but we don’t just stop there, we offer system training and an annual servicing option.
