Accessibility: information for people with a disability
Wheelchair access: a temporary ramp for access up the steps from Gloucester Place is readily available at Reception. All Dhyana Centre activities ordinarily take place on the Ground Floor of the building so there are no other steps to climb. Twin toilets are situated on the Ground Floor with a 25.5 ins access door; there is a more spacious toilet on the First Floor, also with a 25.5 ins door but with a bit more room for manoeuvre inside. There is a central lift inside the building which measures 48ins deep by 31ins wide, and which offers easy access to the larger toilet.
Impaired hearing: the main room used by the Dhyana Centre is fitted with an induction loop which can be activated upon request.
Any other requirements?….. please email the Centre if you have any other difficulties that may restrict your access to the Theosophical Society building.
