Accessibility Audits

Authors: The United Methodist Committee on DisAbility Ministries


This product is a checklist that places of worship can use to check how accessible they are, you can download under the "Web links" tab above. Here is a description taken from the author's webpage:

"An accessibility audit is a list of items that your congregation can use to evaluate its accessibility. Conducting such an audit does not guarantee compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, building codes, or other legal requirements, but one can be used to get a program underway and alert you to potential problems. Structural modifications should be made in consultation with an architect or engineer. It's also a good idea and surprisingly rarely thought of to have some people with disabilities review your plans. This will help ensure that they really work!"

There are annual yearly audits here to download to evaluate different types of accessibility, names of other places that offer audits and accessibility checklists, as well as names of organizations that offer technical assistance.
