The Access Guides

The Access Guides were produced by GCIL and are useful wall charts that give general good practice guidance on access issues for public buildings.  They are designed to be large wall posters and, for best results, should be printed on at least A3 size paper.  Alternatively you can phone SAIF on 0141 559 5021 or email saifscotland@scvo.org.uk for copies to be sent out free of charge.
