The Welsh Assembly Government recognises that if disabled people are to fully participate in society they require equal access to goods, services and premises.
At some point in our lives, all of us face barriers that prevent us from fulfilling our potential and needless to say, these barriers are greater for some people than others. Recent changes to disability legislation has extended rights of access and has also rightly increased disabled people's expectations of the level of service they should now expect to receive when attending meetings and large scale events.

It is vital that we, as the Welsh Assembly Government, and our partners throughout the public sector in Wales take the lead and act as an exemplar to ensure that disabled people are able to participate in society.

The development of the Accessible Venues guidance is an important achievement.  This unique on-line guidance should be used as a tool by venue providers for assessing how best to meet the needs of disabled people.
