Information for social care providers


Making services accessible: a guide for social care providers working in Barnet

This handy guide can help you shape your service to best suit Barnet residents, taking into account things like: 

  • the information about your service is easy to understand 
  • ease of access to your building or venue
  • the behaviour, attitude and skills of your staff

This guide was written by residents in Barnet who are part of the People Bank and Barnet Mencap. They are people with different disabilities, are carers, or who use health and social care services.
