Access Officer Guidance for Public Bodies

Access Officers promote equality and social inclusion by making sure that persons with disabilities can access public services. This is an important part of creating a society where everyone is treated with dignity, has access to human rights and does not suffer from discrimination.

The role of Access Officers is vital to protecting rights, and for this reason is set out in a law that requires all public bodies as defined by Part 3 of the Disability Act to have an Access Officer.
