Welcome to our web site

New Forest Access For All (NFAFA – pronounced nafa) is a small local charity run by a lively, dedicated group of volunteers (well, we think so anyway!).  It was set up in 1997 to highlight the many access problems faced by members of the community, especially people with disabilities .  We became a registered charity in 2004.  We are affiliated to the  National Register of Access Consultants.

Open Meetings.
We hold  regular meetings, open to non-members as well as members, with guest speakers, where people can gather information, exchange ideas and socialise.

We try to hold an open air meeting each year.
We would like to thank the following organisations for their support
Hampshire & Isle of Wight Community Foundation
New Forest
County Council

Easy-Going Walks

We have surveyed and mapped many walks and trails in the New Forest  which are suitable for people with mobility difficulties.  See our easy-going walks page.

Problem Solving

We offer information and advice about access problems to local businesses and service providers. We do access audits of buildings and public spaces.

We work  with the New Forest District Council, Hampshire County Council, the Forestry Commission, and the National Park Authority to identify and find solutions to access problems.  
Other Activities

We  review all the planning applications for the local authorities and comment on many of them, to improve access in the New Forest area.

Our members sit on many local committees to raise the profile of access problems locally.

Chairman’s Notes
We know that many active people with disabilities work, or are unable to attend NFAFA meetings for other reasons.  If you would like to support us, please become a member and keep in touch with our activities via the website and by e-mail.  More members mean more influence with the local authorities to work to improve the lives of people with disabilities and their carers.
