Please note that Hallam House is a period property, and that due to the size of the lift shaft, the lift that is being installed is not DDA compliant and does not meet the minimum requirements for wheelchair access. Once the lift has been installed early next year we will know whether it will be possible to accommodate very slim wheelchairs. Unfortunately this means that our training events and courses at Hallam House are not currently accessible for wheelchair users.
