‘Your museum must have plans to maintain, and where possible to improve:

  • the physical, sensory and intellectual access to your collections
  • information about your collections
  • access to the buildings housing your collections

This might be in a separate access plan, or as part of your forward or business plan or in an audience development plan.’

Dementia toolkit

Resource

The resource is designed with the small museum in mind, but the principles it is based on can be used by anybody anywhere. Organisations can make a real impact on the wellbeing of those living with dementia with only a small initial investment of time, in order to create impact which affects an entire community.

Sensing Culture

Sensing Culture was a project, led by RNIB,  with the aim of removing the barriers that prevent blind and partially sighted people (BPS) from accessing their heritage.
