Croydon Buddhist Centre


We want to make the teachings of the Buddha and the benefits of meditation available to all people in our local community. However, our building is on a slope, so the access to our reception and shrine room is via a set of stairs.


We have visitors who can't yet access our classes, but want to come to classes. We have researched wheelchair lift options advice and have decided on an 'Inclined Platform Lift', which will provide an self-controlled 'roll on-roll off' lift for those in wheelchairs and with mobility aids.
