Accessibility Service Plan
VVC is committed to excellence in serving all clients including people with disabilities.
We will ensure that our staff members are trained and familiar with various assistive devices that may be used by clients or audience members while accessing our services.
We will communicate with people with disabilities in ways that take into account their disability.
We welcome people with disabilities and their service animals. Service animals are allowed on the parts of our premises that are open to clients.
A person with a disability who is accompanied by a support person will be allowed to have that person accompany them on our premises.
Notice of Temporary Disruption
In the event of a planned or unexpected disruption to services or facilities for customers with disabilities, VVC will notify clients promptly.
