Accessible Places Week - we've released our toolkit!

Accessible Places Week - we've released our toolkit!

29 November 2017

We are encouraging our industry to create as inclusive and accessible retail places as possible, all over the country.

We know there is a lot of wonderful work already happening but we hope we can support you to do more. Did you know that 21% of the population lives with a disability and that the Purple Pound is worth £249 billion?!

We’ve worked with our committed members as part of a cross-disciplined Working Group to develop a new toolkit for those looking after retail places. It contains an overview of disabilities, some initial steps to take and a guide through some of the major disabilities people face. We also signpost you to organisations and charities that can help you further.

Through our Working Group, the Office of Disability has been kind enough to lend their expertise and we have had senior representation from Cushman & Wakefield, M&G Real Estate, Hammerson, Disabled Go, ATCM and M&S.

 

So, download your toolkit here and stats infographic here


Finally, do let us know what you think, all your feedback is very welcome. This is just the beginning for us and we hope to support you further in the future.
