Access All Areas for people with learning difficulties and autism


Access All Areas is a free, all-day event for people with learning difficulties and autism in Buckinghamshire.

It is for people over 14 years old, their carers, families, friends and support services. There will be stalls and stands from businesses and services who have specific, useful products to offer as well activities that give people the chance to try things out. There will also be other, quieter activities, including a chill out area and yoga

Access All Areas is on 22 October at Stoke Mandeville Stadium.

Life expectancy for someone with a learning difficulty is significantly lower than others due to a number of reasons: one being the lack of access or awareness of activities or services that can encourage healthy lifestyles and living. This event aims to help people understand what support and activities are available.

If you think you, a loved one or friend can benefit from the Access All Areas event, please come along or encourage others to do so to see what’s on offer. There will be cooking demos, smoothie-making bikes, inclusive sports, NHS services, advice and lots of other exciting things to try out.

The event is also seeking support from local businesses to provide items or things that can be taken away on the day for visitors. Please go to the information page above for more details.
