Access Partner | Our services

At Transport for All, we believe that it’s only when the lived experience of Deaf and disabled people is applied to the design, planning, running and evaluation of services that they will truly offer access for all. Our Access Partner consultancy applies this principle and helps organisations to deliver maximum positive impact from their services for Deaf, disabled and older people.   

 There is no typical model for our Access Partnerships; we are responsive to our partners’ objectives and will work with you to identify which services will help you to deliver these.   

Disability Equality Training (DET) - online and in-person options

We offer sector-leading DET that increases participants’ understanding of the Social Model of Disability, how to use this to remove barriers for disabled people, and the importance of pro-active engagement and consultation with Deaf, disabled and older people at an individual, service and organisational level. We will work with you to tailor the training to ensure it meets your participants’ requirements. 

Equality Impact Assessment (EqIA) guidance and training

We can support you to produce good practice EqIAs. It’s important that you retain ownership of your EqIAs as the owners of the change you are delivering, but we can support you by identifying potential impacts and recommending solutions.  We offer an EqIA masterclass covering principles of best practice, and we support organisations to develop a framework for producing EqIAs for their projects.

Public consultation, including focus groups and user testing

Our consultation support will capture how your initiatives effect Deaf, disabled and older people, offering a full picture of the opinions, opportunities and solutions for increasing access and reducing impact. We can advise on your consultation tools and methodologies, and partner with you to shape and deliver particular consultations, ensuring a pan-impairment approach 

Communications and Content production

We are expert consultants in the design and production of communications and content around accessible transport, and can advise you on how to make your comms accessible to disabled people with a range of access requirements. 

Ad hoc advice and guidance

We provide ad hoc advice and guidance throughout your accessibility journey, to help you find solutions in an agile, iterative way. 

Our work is designed to help you make access and inclusion an integral part of your organisation; we are planning our exit as soon as we begin. In addition, all income generated from our work is invested in our not-for-profit organisation, providing added social value for our partners.
