There are around 11 million people in the UK with long term illness, impairment or disability, they spend collectively in access of 80bn per annum (the so called purple pound) with businesses just like yours. Are you making the most of the opportunities that better access to your business can bring? This is not just about shops virtually every business will have potential customers who are disabled.
