It gives an overview of how to include the needs of the whole population when designing and selecting buildings, furnishings and fittings, as well as developing management regimes, receiving visitors, and preparing evacuation strategies.

The Equality Act 2010 ensures the needs of all potential building and service users are met through the provision of an inclusive environment.
