We believe passionately that no disability should prevent an individual from enjoying art

    Every visitor should have access to a lifetime of learning

At Tate we work hard to ensure that visitors with disabilities are able to access and enjoy our galleries and collection.

We do this by providing out-of-hours access, British Sign Language talks, multimedia guides and Deafblind/Touch tours.

Donate now

Help us ensure that everyone can develop their enjoyment and knowledge of art and simply have freedom of movement within our galleries.

Your gift, no matter the size, will make a real and important difference. Thank you.
