We are committed to making every visit to our venue as enjoyable as possible.
A VENUE FOR EVERYONE
At ICC Belfast, we understand that everyone is different, and we want to welcome all visitors to our venue regardless of any accessibility requirements that they may have. We continually strive to provide an inclusive environment for visitors, contractors and employees and address the needs of all visitors to the venue. Our location is in the heart of the city centre and is easily accessed by car, taxi and public transport.
ICC Belfast has committed to leading transformational change to become an accessible, diverse and inclusive venue. This included over 80% of staff completing Jam Card training which allows customers to communicate their accessibility needs discreetly, highlighting that they may need a little extra time and patience during their visit.
Our Changing Places facility is located in the Riverside Foyer area. Changing Places toilets are larger accessible toilets for severely disabled people, with equipment such as hoists, curtains, adult-sized changing benches and space for carers.
A legacy initiative
A legacy initiative from the Harkin International Disability Employment Summit was the development of a Social Narrative Access Video for delegates. The video, which covers arrival and complete access to the venue was produced by disabled-led arts charity, University of Atypical.
Please feel free to get in touch in advance of your visit if you have any specific accessibility requirements you would like our team to be aware of.
