Purple Tuesday is delighted to release a short video which has been produced for staff in organisations which have signed up and made a commitment to improve the shopping experience for their disabled customers.

Shopping should be a pleasant experience, but for many disabled people it can often be the cause of distress and frustration. By failing to cater to their disabled customers, many businesses are missing out on billions of pounds and denying disabled people the opportunity to enjoy something which many people take for granted.

Sarah Newton, The Minister for Disabled People, Work and Health
