Introducing All In
All In is the new planned UK-wide access scheme being developed by the four UK Arts Councils. It’s ambition is to improve the experience of D/deaf, disabled, and neurodivergent people when attending creative and cultural events. They want to help creative and cultural venues and organisations improve access, welcome new visitors, and increase overall attendance.
There will be a new digital system that allows people with access requirements to securely share their personal data with participating organisations. It means they won’t need to repeat this every time they visit a new venue that is part of the scheme. For venues, it’ll help reduce admin time, increase staff confidence, and provide a secure way of receiving customers’ personal details.
They are also developing an All In support directory to help you find consultants, freelancers, and organisations from across the UK and start making improvements to access.
Led by a team of individuals with lived experience and extensive knowledge of access and inclusion, All In aims to introduce UK-wide accessibility standards for creativity and culture.
The All In scheme is led by Arts Council England in collaboration with Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Arts Council of Wales, and Creative Scotland.
