The Access Card

credsmallThe Access card is a great new concept from Nimbus (another social enterprise giving their profits to Disability Direct).

The card is designed to provide you with evidence about the barriers you face as a disabled person so that service providers can tell you about what they can do to remove them. It’s also a great way for us to negotiate discounts and special offers on your behalf. The only organisations that can use the scheme are ones which we have quality assured ourselves so you can have confidence in finding information about a service before you use it and can feedback to us afterwards.

To find out more contact Martin Austin at Nimbus:
