National Award For Staircase House

Staircase House has received an 'Excellence in Access' award from the ADAPT Trust. The ADAPT Trust (Access for Disabled people to Arts Premises Today) operates throughout the UK with a goal to improve access by advising and assisting arts and heritage venues to create effective access for everyone.
Having been classed as ‘excellent,’ Staircase House is being awarded a grant of £1,000 to assist with future access initiatives. The Council plans to invest in an on-site wheelchair and additional tactile and Braille signage around the historic attraction. These additions will complement the British Sign Language Tour, touch tour, and step and stair free tours already available, making Staircase House one of the national leaders in accessible heritage.
