About the Access and Inclusion Index

The Access and Inclusion Index gives organisations insights into their strengths and maturity on their journey to be accessible and inclusive to people with disability. The easy-to-use, whole of organisation tool, provides a roadmap for year on year progress.

How it works

There are three tools available:

Available to all organisations at no cost, answer 10 questions to get a snapshot of your current performance against key access and inclusion criteria. It also provides valuable information on how to progress.

Access and Inclusion Index Comprehensive Self-Assessment

Included in AND membership. You can comprehensively self-assess your organisation’s maturity on the journey towards disability confidence, get a score out of 100 and share with your colleagues across the organisation to develop your plan for progress.

Access and Inclusion Index AND Evaluation and Benchmark report 

AND will review your comprehensive self-assessment and provide a summary or comprehensive report (comprehensive reports recommended for first time participants). The evaluation and benchmark report will tell you how your organisation is performing relative to others and help you to direct your effort to maximise your impact.
