Accreditation Summary

Date: 14/12/2017

Summary:

The contact service is located within a modern, fully accessible building within close proximity to the centre of Weston Super Mare. Being so close to the town centre means that the service is complimented by good bus and train links. The town is also served by the M5 motorway. The centre has a large, free of charge car park for people using the service.

The service is very fortunate to have the use of a Sure Start Childrens centre. The building is very modern and to some extent purpose built.

The service has one main entrance. This is glass fronted and controlled electronically.

Staff set up a reception area near to the entrance so that people are greeted by staff upon entry to the building.

There is a kitchen that staff serve drinks from. There are no outside facilities.
