Prioritisation of Accessibility and Inclusivity

We have carefully chosen the Cambridge West Hub as our event venue due to its exceptional accessibility features and inclusive environment. The venue is well-equipped to meet the diverse needs of our community members, ensuring that every participant feels welcomed, valued, and comfortable throughout the day. To further enhance accessibility, we will be providing:

A quiet room throughout the event for individuals who need a space to rest and recharge. Fidget toys and sensory items to help attendees regulate their sensory needs and stay focused. Color-coded bracelets that allow participants to communicate their social interaction preferences without having to verbally explain themselves.
