The Institute is committed to providing equality of access to services and facilities and to the development of an inclusive environment for all visitors and staff, and we aim to offer assistance and support wherever possible to any visitor who has a disability.  Please do let us know in advance how we can assist your visit to the Institute – we are happy to discuss with you how we can support you.  Due to the nature of our Grade II listed building we are unable to provide step-free access to our facilities and the Library is not currently accessible to wheelchair users or those with limited mobility, but we are developing resources to access events via video link or conference call, and would welcome feedback on how to improve access for all.
