HI! WELCOME TO
I'm Seema Flower (that's not me in the picture**) - I started this business 20 years ago. As a blind woman I was always shocked how Blind and other Disabled customers were treated. I thought 'there has to be a better way'. Thankfully today there is. And with the introduction of the UK Equalities Act in 2010 it's now a legal requirement to consider and adapt to the needs of disabled customer for most business.
That's the stick but what about the carrot? Disabled people and their family and friends have money and they actively want to spend it with your business!
Often making quite small changes, beginning with education, you can empower your disabled customers and improve your bottom line.
**but the little girl looked too happy to leave out.
