About Fair4All Events

Disabled people are often excluded from outdoor public events. This is not because they do not want to attend these events, but because the way the event is organized and staged creates barriers that make it difficult or impossible for them to attend. BuDS’ free-to-use Fair4All event project helps event organisers remove those barriers and attract more disabled people to their events, making them more successful. There are over 40,000 disabled people in Buckinghamshire and over 100,000 families with a disabled member, so being more accessible can significantly boost an event’s popularity and attendance.

Event organisers are often not aware that they are creating barriers which are reducing the appeal of their events. Event management training and qualifications do not usually cover disabled accessibility and inclusion. Disabled people are so used to events not being accessible that most do not even try to attend, which means event organisers do not see the difficulties that disabled people face.

Covid-19 Risk Assessment Week Ending 9 May 2022

The cautiously good news about Covid-19 in Buckinghamshire continues, with the number of infected people falling and the pressure on hospitals easing too. BUT this is a fall from an extraordinary high peak, so the risk of catching Covid when out and about in Bucks is still EXTREMELY HIGH.

BuDS still urges everyone to be Covid-Cautious and keep taking sensible precautions against catching Covid. The chances of coming across a person with Covid in your everyday life is still EXTREMELY HIGH. Wear a FFP2 or N95 filter mask in public places, breathe clean air, avoid crowds and busy places, work from home if you can, and protect your older and vulnerable relatives and friends.

BuDS will let you know as soon as levels start to fall to safer levels where precautions can be relaxed.
