Removing Barriers Policy Statement

The leaders and members of All Saints' Church, Darton, Barnsley, welcome and support the principles of Removing Barriers, designed to enable disabled people and elderly people to worship God in fellowship with other members of their community.


We are committed to a programme of improvements to make activities and facilities more accessible to people at All Saints' Church, Darton, regardless of their disability or disabling condition.


We will develop and monitor our wider church programme to ensure that there are no barriers to accessibility or to participation in activities within the life of our church.


We will ensure that paid and volunteer staff are given training on disability issues to enable staff in their ministry to be fully inclusive to everyone.


The contact person for disability-related issues is Mary McDonald, who would be pleased to receive comments and suggestions for improvements.
