Training Room and Resources Hire


Disability Equality has a large training room at 103-104 Church Street, Preston. This is made available to community groups and the statutory sector.

To book this facility please telephone 01772 558863 or e-mail steven@disability-equality.org.uk and you will be sent this policy with a booking form. If you do not fill out a booking form we cannot guarantee that your requests will be granted or that the room will be available.

Terms and conditions

In order to book this room you must agree to the conditions of the following policy.

Disability Equality is a disabled people's organisation and a charity; therefore many of the staff and volunteers are disabled people who cannot always be expected to clean up after the event.

The building is also shared by Lancashire Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual Group.

Disability Equality accepts no liability for loss or damage to personal belonging or for any accident or injury whilst using our facilities.

We do not accept language or behaviour that is racist, disablist, homophobic or ageist. 

You must respect....

  • We expect that those groups that hire the training room ensure that they tidy it up when they have finished. Please stack chairs and tidy away.
  • Dirty crockery/cutlery should be collected and left by the sink in the training room.
  • Ensure that all windows are closed and secured and the blinds shut.
  • If you are booking the training room for the evening please ensure that you pick up the keys before 3.30pm.
  • In the evening you must ensure that you wind down the shutter (key provided) and post the key through the opening in the shutter.

A check list is provided with the booking form - via link at bottom of this page
