Jersey’s public buildings are to be assessed on how accessible they are for people with disabilities.
Liberate Jersey, an equality and diversity charity, has begun conducting audits of government-owned buildings.
The news was released on Wednesday, which was the United Nations International Day of Persons With Disabilities.
So far, the Jersey Library, States building, Central Market and the Opera House have been assessed against a checklist of more than 100 building criteria including car parking, lifts, lighting and handrails.
Results will be allocated a blue, orange or green status depending on the level of improvement that might be needed.
Paul McGinnety, director of customer and local services, said: "The work Liberate Jersey are doing supports government’s Disability Strategy which focuses on ensuring disabled islanders are able to have greater access to public buildings and the services they provide.
"The work is ongoing, and we welcome the findings of the audits."
