LaDIYfest Sheffield always aims to use venues and resources that are accessible and suitable for people with disabilities/impairments or have other access requests, and if this is not entirely possible we aim to be clear on those restrictions. Disablist language is never welcome at our events.
We would encourage individuals with any specific requirements or queries to contact us directly so that we can discuss providing solutions or work on alternative options to ensure your needs are met. We welcome feedback and criticism if there are aspects you feel we could improve on or issues that need further consideration.
We are currently planning the lay-out and scheduling for our 2012 November Weekender with the intention of making this an inclusive and accessible event. We welcome input from anyone who has suggestions or recommendations for ensuring this.
Accessibility planning at our events is influenced by the very helpful guidelines provided by Philippa Willitts (http://www.thefword.org.uk/blog/2012/05/how_to_run_an_a).
