Small Changes Can Make A Huge Difference
Since 2003 JPS Systems N.E. Ltd have worked with many Local Authorities and other organisations to ensure they are complying with what was then known as the DDA Act 1995, and is now known as the Equalities Act of 2010
Service Providers have a duty to ensure that visitors and employees who may have a disability have equal access to the facilities being provided
*According to new Government data, there are now 13.9 million disabled people in the UK. That means disabled people now make up 22% of the UK population – more than one in five.
Access issues and outdated attitudes mean disabled people and their families are often shut out from activities many people take for granted, such as visiting a restaurant, popping to the shops or hopping on a bus.
This is bad for the economy, with businesses missing out on the £250billion annual spending power of disabled people and their families.
These problems are easy to fix. Staff can be trained and buildings can be adapted. We don’t need to live in a society where nearly a quarter of the population is shut out of everyday life.
Are you doing all you can to make sure that people with a disability can use your business?.
If they can't use yours they will go to one of your competitors.
Sometimes even small adjustments may make a huge difference to someone whose use of the facilities might otherwise be restricted and you'll be pleasantly surprised at how little it may cost.
Providing an Induction Loop, or a Speech Transfer System or even having a Customer Care Kit can make a huge difference to those who might otherwise find it difficult to use your facility
