We aim to make Wildfires accessible to everyone that comes along. Here are some of the provisions that we have to help make that happen:
Disabled toilets and showers
BSL interpretation in main sessions
Additional needs provision for children and youth venues
(Please note this is currently unavailable but we hope to rectify this soon)
The main walkways in the Wildfires site will have tracking for those using wheelchairs or mobility aids.
A golf buggy shuttle service will be available for those with mobility needs during the Wildfires programme days.
There will be a hearing loop in the main sessions
If you have any questions regarding accessibility or would like to make us aware of any additional support that you may require, please get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
CHILDREN + YOUTH ACCESSIBILITY
We are committed to doing all that we can to ensure that Wildfires is accessible to everyone. With this in mind we have a team focussed on supporting the with additional needs in each children and youth venue across the site. When you register your child or young person you will have an option to state if they have any additional needs, from which we can begin arranging any support that they may require so make sure you register with ample time prior to the event.
Where needed we aim to provide a 1-to-1 carer for any child or young person who wants to attend the children or youth programme. This means parents are free to enjoy both the morning and evening main sessions whilst their child is cared for by one of our amazing volunteers.
Where a 1-to-1 is not required but support is needed, our additional needs team will have a presence (2 or more volunteers) in every venue so your child has a familiar point of contact and someone looking out for them during the programme sessions.
There will also be a Quiet Space venue with craft and sensory activities. The Quiet Space will be open during the main morning and evening sessions and also during the afternoon from 2-4pm for anyone with additional needs aged 18 and under as a safe space to play. Parents must supervise during the afternoon sessions.
