Fund Office, al. Jana Pawła II 13, Warsaw
The building has an entrance at al. Jana Pawła II 13. There is one large step in the front of the entrance, marked with a contrasting tape on the edge. On the left side of the building (from Śliska Street), there is a wheelchair ramp. You can get to the ramp by a wide pavement from both ul. Śliska and al. Jana Pawła II.
The entrance door is automatic and marked with two contrasting tapes.
There is a reception desk and security staff on the right in the building. The reception desk and the office desk on the ground floor are not lowered. There are toilets for persons with disabilities on the ground floor and all other floors. There may be minor inconveniences due to the failure to maintain a maneuvering area of the minimum dimensions of 1.5 m x 1.5 m, the location of dispensers with soap and paper towels.
There is an information board in contrasting colors (black letters on a white background) in front of the entrance.
There are also notice boards on the right, behind the reception. A difficulty may be related to these boards' height - the advertisements are illegible for a person in a wheelchair.
On the left to the entrance, there are information points for persons running a business, agricultural activity and companies using PFRON support, as well as employers obliged to make contributions to PFRON. The desk heights and space are sufficient.
There are parking spaces for persons with disabilities near the office:
- 3 spots at al. Jana Pawła II 11
- 9 spots at Śliska Str. at the building of PFRON’s office and along Śliska 52 Str.
There is a bus stop Rondo ONZ 01 (lines: 109, 160, 174, 178) in the building’s vicinity, on the side of al. Jana Pawła II as well as:
- tram lines stops (10, 11, 15, 17, 33), with the stops approximately 300 m away, and
- the second metro line (approx. 200 m).
Sign language online translator
There are devices installed in the Fund's office for translating conversations. They are available:
- at the Information desk of the Co-financing and Reimbursement System (ground floor, hall - after entering the building you should turn left and approach the position marked with a sign language interpreter),
- at the Management Board Support Department (information on individual matters of persons with disabilities, 9th floor - room 909),
- at the main entrance (security).
To increase the comfort of communication of hearing-impaired persons, induction loops were installed. We tested these devices with persons who use hearing aids.
We have installed induction loops in two places:
- at the Information desk of the Co-financing and Reimbursement System (ground floor, hall - after entering, you should turn left and approach the position marked with the induction loop symbol),
- in the conference room on the ninth floor - room no. 907.
Sign language content
We translate a large part of the articles on the PFRON website into sign language. You will recognize them by the respective sign.
Click the sign (sign language pictogram - Scroll to sign language translation), and the article will scroll to translation. The translation video may be available at the end of the article.
Deaf persons may contact us in various ways. We provide the number 517 373 975 for text contact only for the deaf.
Information for deaf-blind persons
If you are a deaf-blind person and need a translator-guide for yourself, please report such a need to us in advance (3 working days) by phone: 517 373 975 (also via SMS) or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information for blind and visually-impaired persons
You can enter the building and all its rooms with an assistance dog and a guide dog.
The beginning and end of the stairs flight are marked with a contrasting color. Contrasting floor numbers have also been installed.
The elevators are equipped with sound signaling and voice messages on the direction of the lift (up, down), closing and opening the door, floor number, additional information (exit from the building). The elevator panel is marked in the Braille alphabet.
There are no magnified print markings in the building dedicated for the visually-impaired.
Blind persons who want to use our website materials printed in Braille alphabet may contact us at email@example.com.
