Why use NRAC?

Competency. Professionalism. Independence. 

Within our membership you can find expertise to assist with a wide range of accessibility and inclusive design related matters, including:

  • Inclusive design advisory services for projects
  • Access audits of existing environments
  • Policy and procedural advice
  • Assistance with Heritage Lottery and other funding
  • Training in relation to access and inclusive design

Whether you are looking to capitalise on the benefits of inclusive design, or to assure yourself your organisation is meeting its legal obligations, NRAC accredited Access Consultants and Access Auditors are uniquely placed to advise. 

Members of the NRAC have been subject to a rigorous two part assessment including professional interview to prove their competence. As part of their assessment to join our register members have to demonstrate they meet our defined core competencies; a unique combination of understanding in relation to legislation, technical standards and user needs applicable to disability access and inclusive design, including the Equality Act 2010 (which replaced the DDA).
