FAQ

I want to see a Player Guide on my particular disability/health issue/access need?

Great! Access:LARP welcomes contributions from people with first hand experience of these things. Because these things are best written from the poit of view of somebody who lives with the issues, we ask for contributions from you guys.

You can submit either a full guide or you can submit ideas and suggestions to be put in to a guide along without people’s contributions.

See the Submission Guidelines.

I am a player with a disability/chronic illness/access need and I need advice on LARPing with it?

First check the Player Guides, to see if there is something that covers your need. More guides will be added over time.

If it’s not covered in a guide, or you have a specific scenario in mind, then you can ask a question using the Contact form and I will do my best to answer. Please indicate if it is ok to include your question in the Q&A section to help other players. You can always asked to be kept anonymous.

I am an organiser and would like advice on a specific accessibility scenario?

First, check the Guides for Organisers, as your question might be covered there.

Secondly, if this is in relation to a specific player, it is often best to discuss the situation with them as they know their needs best.

However, if this is a more general question or is about developing your plot and game to be accessible then you can ask a question using the Contact form and I will do my best to answer. Please indicate if it is ok to include your question in the Q&A section to help other organisers. You can always asked to be kept anonymous.

I am running an event that is not a LARP and I need accessibility advice

The Guides to Accessibility may still be useful for you. Though they are tailored to LARP the core ideas should help in all events and the scenarios may give you ideas. Plus the Guides are free to use.

However if you are looking for more tailored or specific consultations please go to Access:Check and see what services are on offer.
