The Trust has worked with AccessAble to provide a detailed guide for all of our departments, wards and services at the Lister – which includes information on lighting, signage, doors, ramps and more.
AccessAble takes the chance out of going out. To give you the detailed information you need to work out if a place is going to be accessible to you.
Its Detailed Access Guides tell you all about a venue’s access. They are 100% facts, figures and photographs.
