The assessment was held at the Awareness Centre in the middle of Axminster. I had to drop my husband off at the door and then go to park and return to pick him up later as there is no disabled parking. Even dropping him off was uncomfortable as the street is very busy and narrow. The nearest car park is at least a couple of hundred yards away although there are disabled parking spaces.
There were a couple of steps into the centre with a handrail and I remember the doorway being quite narrow.
Once we were inside we were offered refreshments and waited in the reception room. Toilets were available on the ground floor.
The meeting was on the ground floor and the room was spacious. The meeting room was opposite the reception room.
I am not able to comment on public transport as I do not know the town well enough
