Dundee Science Centre facilities and displays have been designed with ease of disability access in mind with the support from our assisted needs advisory panel.
Through our co-design journey we’ve created new accessible facilities including our Changing Places toilet, Sensory Zone, Sensory Garden and outdoor space for Café Create!
Advocating Together (Dundee) SCIO, an independent advocacy and capacity building organisation which benefits people with learning disabilities and or autism and or complex communication needs were some of the first people to preview the new facilities.
Gillian Kelly, Advocacy Worker shared their thoughts,
"The group really enjoyed their visit to the Dundee Science Centre, and it was great to see what they had done to make the attraction accessible and so welcoming for people, including the individuals we support."
"Some of the group who visited, commented on the Sensory room saying it gives the place a calm and peaceful feel. Others commented how spacious the room was for wheelchair users in particular. Overall, our group were very impressed with the layout of the ground floor, and how smart it was. For one member in particular, who has worked closely with the co-design project on one of the designs, felt it was great to see their idea come to life."
It is important to us that all visitors feel welcome. Our friendly team are always on hand to provide assistance and to offer support for the varying needs of all visitors. If you, or a member of your group has a disability, here is some information to help you plan and prepare for your visit.
