Allotments provide a number of health and social benefits but are often inaccessible for the people they could most benefit. Many managers and associations are keen to improve access to their sites. The need to do so is underlined by the Disability Discrimination Act.

This factsheet provides an overview of the issues involved in improving accessibility and makes some practical suggestions for implementing them.

Includes contact details for a variety of allotment-based projects or sites demonstrating good practice in this area.
