Working with Attitude is Everything

Attitude is Everything improves Deaf and disabled people's access to live music by working in partnership with audiences, artists and the music industry to implement a Charter of Best Practice across the UK.

We are signed up to the charter and are delighted to announce that we were awarded Silver in February 2013. We're the first Students' Union in the country to achieve Silver and we're now working hard to achieve Gold status.

We started working Attitude is Everything in 2011, to improving deaf and disabled people’s access to music venues.

Signing up to Attitude is Everything’s charter of best practice meant venues such as The Academy 1,2,3, Club Academy and the Union Bar were mystery shopped by deaf and disabled gig goers to help venues make improvements in line with the customers feedback.Our venue underwent rigours investigation including an access survey and were required to make an action plan which demonstrates a venues long term commitment towards accessibility.
