We at West Richmond Friends want all of our programs and worship activities to be fully accessible to people with various physical abilities!
Our new holds a wheelchair and 1-3 adults. Drive into the archway between the meetinghouse and Richmond Friends School, and you'll find it right inside the door.
The elevator will take you up to the worship room, library, and fellowship room, or down to the dining room, nursery, office, and to the AA/12-Step meeting area. SPECIAL NOTE: Be sure to press and hold the call button when you want the elevator to come, and then press and hold the button for the floor you want.
The downstairs bathroom is fully wheelchair-accessible. The doors on the two upstairs bathrooms are too narrow for a wheelchair, but they have handrails, accessible sinks, privacy locks, and motion detector-controlled lights. Extra wheelchairs are available for use within the building.
Hearing assistance devices are available for worship. Ask one of the greeters to get you one when you come in! These pocket-sized receivers are much more powerful than a standard hearing aid and help users hear the entire service clearly and distinctly.
We have large-print hymnals and Bibles available at the greeter's table. We also provide large-print bulletins every Sunday.
Our meeting also has wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, commodes and other equipment available for loan.
Please do not hesitate to call the office if you have questions about accessibility.
West Richmond Friends Meeting is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability. We aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0, Level AA), published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make Web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly to everyone. Whilst we strive to adhere to the guidelines and standards for accessibility, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website and we are currently working to achieve this. Be aware that due to the dynamic nature of the website, minor issues may occasionally occur as it is updated regularly. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility.
If you have any comments and or suggestions relating to improving the accessibility of our site, please don't hesitate to contact our accessibility coordinator <name> by <phone> or <e-mail>. Your feedback will help us make improvements.
