Inclusive Design Hub for the Built Environment

The Design Council (UK) has created the Inclusive Design Hub for the built environment. It covers buildings and outdoor spaces, in all phases of development including planning, design and construction, right through to the management of those buildings and places. It is a collection of resources and we do not promote the use of one over the other.
