• Liverpool Inclusivity Charter

What is the Inclusive Places Charter?

Inclusive Places

The Inclusive Places Charter Mark is an award distributed by Liverpool City Council to organisations across the city’s hospitality and visitor economy sector. The charter has been adapted to measure the individual features of visitor attractions, hotels, and hospitality. Each version breaks down into three core groups, communication, physical and sensory access.

It is designed to help businesses across the hospitality and visitor economy sectors understand the requirements of deaf, disabled and neurodivergent individuals, by building equality into all elements of the experiences for guests and visitors.

The scheme shows the individual features of each location, focused around communication, physical and sensory access.

Objectives of the Inclusive Places Charter Mark:

1. Improve access to hospitality venues for all Liverpool citizens and visitors

2. Raise awareness of disabling barriers

3. Highlight and encourage disabling barriers training within visitor attractions and hospitality venues

4. Ensure new buildings and planned refurbishments have good access
