In October 2017, Auckland Eye North Shore commissioned Be. Accessible to perform a Be. Welcome Assessment on our business with the purpose of assisting our journey towards 100% accessibility.

We recently received our accessibility report and are proud to have been awarded a Gold Rating.

Be. Accessible is a social enterprise  which works across all sectors and communities throughout New Zealand. They provide a holistic framework for businesses to work towards to ensure they are providing unlimited access for all people, regardless of an individual's access needs or challenges.

Key areas of the assessment which Auckland Eye excelled at included our website and brochures which are easy to navigate and increased in size if required. In addition, we provide superior accessibility on site with the use of signage, sensory options and well considered design. Our staff were also given a commendation for their helpfulness and ability to cater for visitors with access requirements.

Auckland Eye is committed to providing first-class service inclusively to all, and are proud that we have been acknowledged as having excellent levels of accessibility. We also look forward to implementing the recommendations that were provided through our Be. Accessible assessment to further us on our journey towards 100% accessibility.
