The Dene Centre

Accessibility at the Dene Centre

The Dene Centre is located in its own grounds with a private car park.

All departments and commercial outlets at the Dene Centre are located on the ground floor. Visitors are asked to report to, and sign in, at reception, where there is a loop system to assist people with hearing impairments.

The conference room, (also fitted with a loop system), is upstairs and can be accessed by any of three separate staircases, (all of which are fitted with stairlifts – two straight and one curved), a vertical through-floor lift, or by an external ramp.

Four of the five toilets in the centre have accessible features such as grab rails, two of the toilets have wash-dry facilities, two have changing facilities and one also has a ceiling track hoist.

There is also a multi-terrain mobility garden and a scooter track.

For visitors with guide or assistance dogs there is a dog run located at the rear of the building.


As Covid restrictions ease, the Dene Centre is open by appointment only. Our key services continue to operate and if you would like assistance please call us on 0191 284 0480 or email and we will be happy to help you.
