exciting announcement

Whilst there are a number of stairs at SAA HQ, we are able to offer the use of a stairlift to visitors with limited mobility. If possible, please do give us a call if you’re planning to visit our HQ and will need use of the stairlift so we can make sure a member of the team is on hand to help!

Please note: you will need to be able to get in and out of the chair unaided. The stairlift also has a weight limit of 19 stone.

When you arrive at SAA HQ, simply pop in to reception and a member of the team will be happy to help.
