We want to make the Devoted site as accessible as we can for everyone. Here are a few ways we can help:
Accessible toilets and showers will be available on site.
We have signing in the main meetings each day.
If you have an electric scooter, and it needs recharging, the information desk on site will be able to help you.
Wheelchair users will be free to sit where they wish to in the various venues across site, but please be aware that we do need clear access in aisles in case of fire or other emergencies, if you are unsure one of our friendly stewards will be able to advise you.
A hearing loop will be in use in the main hall in the sections directly in front of the main stage.
When you have a disability knowing you are not defined by it is the sweetest feeling.
Should you have any specific needs which you feel we should know or you would like to discuss with us please do get in touch with the event team and we will endeavour to help you.
We are hoping to put together a team of people who will be able to help you during the event. Our aim is to provide a central location where you can go for support and advice. If you have been in touch with us about your accessibility requirements someone from this team will be in contact with you prior to the event, to further discuss your needs and to introduce themselves. Our hope is that we'll also be able to provide a place that people with additional needs and their carers can access throughout the event, for some quiet space, refreshments and time out.
If you would be interested in joining or assisting this team both before or during the event click here.
If you have additional needs, or you are a parent or carer of someone who is attending the event, please don't feel under any obligation to volunteer to help, especially if this would be too much! Although we would love your input and support if you do have capacity!
Pain is pain. Broken is broken. FEAR is the biggest disability of all and will PARALYSE you more than being in a wheel chair.
