Campaigns

Everyday activities like shopping can present challenges for some customers. There are many small actions you can take to make your stores more accessible for everyone.

Our new Everyone Welcome Guide provides advice for retailers both in terms of how stores can be adapted and how colleagues can provide a welcoming environment for all customers. 

The Everyone Welcome Guide has been developed in consultation with the Alzheimer’s Society, the Business Disability Forum, Age UK and National Innovation Centre for Rural Enterprise.

To launch the new guide, we hosted a webinar where ACS Government Relations Director Ed Woodall talked through the key principles in the guide followed by a panel discussion with Rachel Brown (Sense), Parma Sira (Business Disability Forum) and independent retailer Amy Sohal, chaired by ACS chief executive James Lowman.

The full guide is available to download here.

If you have any questions about this month’s campaign, including how to get involved, please contact chloe.hunsley@acs.org.uk
