Awards on for access.
Minister for disabled people Maria Eagle has called on businesses to go the extra mile for their disabled customers while launching a new award scheme.
Run by the Department for Work and Pensions The Department for Work and Pensions (or DWP) (Welsh: Adran Gwaith a Phensiynau) is the largest government department in the Government of the United Kingdom, created on June 8, 2001, from the merger of the employment part of the Department for Education and , Access All Areas will promote accessible and innovative services.
Ms Eagle said: "Access All Areas means precisely that. Disabled people should be able to expect the same opportunities in their daily life as anybody - whether going to the shops, socialising or playing sport. These awards are about recognising the sort of good common-sense changes that make real business sense, too."
Access All Areas is open to small businesses and organisations with fewer than 50 employees. The closing date for entries is September September: see month. 30.
A free information pack containing notes about the awards, an entry form and a video explaining the Disability Discrimination Act is available from: DDA DDA Disability Discrimination Act (1995, UK)
