There are many reasons why you should think about access and how you plan to meet the
requirements of people with disabilities:
• There are around 60 million people with disabilities in India representing a considerable
proportion of your potential audience or customers.

• People with disabilities can also influence the choices of their families and friends if they have
had a previous bad experience.
• Everyone benefits when access is better, including other attendees, people making deliveries,
people with heavy baggage, families with young children and those with prams.
• Our population is ageing and as we age our capacities change.
• Under the law you have a legal responsibility to prevent discrimination against people with
disabilities. Complaints of discrimination could result in costly court proceedings and rulings.
If the needs of potential participants in an event are taken into account at the earliest planning
stages the better the chances of making it genuinely accessible and significantly reducing the
potential for future problems.
