Knightstone HA

Scheme 1 Knightstone Housing Association – an inclusive workspace
Extract:

“We wanted to create an inclusive environment, where our staff could work collaboratively, creatively and productively and where customers and other visitors would feel welcome and at home.

Making sure the office was accessible for staff and visitors with disabilities was a big part of this but not the only consideration. For example, we also wanted to meet the needs of people with a variety of cultural and religious beliefs, people with young children, breast-feeding women and to provide good facilities for staff who cycle to work.”
