We are committed to maximising access for everyone, by continually listening to the voices of people with lived experience and responding; doing everything we can, within the limitations of our Grade I listed heritage buildings, monuments, gardens, and wider estate, to provide the best and most engaging experience for all of our visitors.

One of the ways we will do this is with the help and support of a new Access Panel – a new group of disabled volunteers and/or their companions who are passionate and committed to making heritage locations more accessible.

Main Purpose of the Role

West Horsley Place is looking for people with lived experience of one or more disabling barriers to join its new Access Panel.

Whether facing barriers to their own access needs or to those of their companion, Access Panel Members will use their experience to input to discussion on barriers they face when visiting West Horsley Place and possible improvements to accessibility that could be made.

As an Access Panel Member, you will:

  • Be part of a positive step towards improved access to heritage
  • Attend up to four meetings at West Horsley Place per year
  • Provide feedback on your experience of visiting West Horsley Place
  • Be passionate about making heritage sites more accessible for everyone.
  • Listen to the other panel members
  • Work together with the rest of the Access Panel to highlight the barriers to access and provide suggestions for ways to improve visitor experience and accessibility
