Purple Tuesday can change lives by providing a positive customer experience to disabled people. We invite you to join us on this journey by making a commitment to improve the customer experience for disabled people.

Purple Tuesday – which includes free support and resources – is:

•    An opportunity for all organisations across all sectors to improve their customer experience for disabled people.

•    For organisations of all sizes, from large multinational corporates to small, family-run businesses. Whatever your size, improving your customer experience is central to what you do.

•    An international event with activities planned in; Australia, the Middle East and countries in continental Europe.

•    About changing the customer experience for disabled people all year round, not just for one day.

•    Supported in the UK by a Planning Group involving leading brands and property groups, including Landsec, Marks and Spencer, The Crown Estate, Hammerson, Sainsbury’s, intu and Asda.

•    A working partnership between disabled people and organisations. An Advisory Group of disabled people is being established in order to ensure disabled customers’ needs are fully understood.

There are different ways your organisation can get involved with Purple Tuesday. This includes a range of resources that are completely free for you and your organisation, provided you make a commitment to improve the customer experience for your disabled customers.

Building on ideas and actions from last year’s 1,500+ commitments, your organisation might want to consider implementing one or more of the following:

Online accessibility audit

Your organisation’s website is a gateway to what you do, but often has unnecessary barriers which prevent disabled people from accessing information

Physical access audit

To identify where you can make on-site improvements

 

Disability customer service training

Customer service training

To your staff through face to face, online or blended forms of delivery

Training and awareness

To promote hidden disabilities through the adoption of the ‘Not every disability is visible’ signage

Physical access audit

Sign language

Training your staff to learn some key words and phrases in British Sign

 

Training and awareness

Formalising quiet hours

To support people with autism as well as others with sensory needs

All the commitments – made by more than 750 organisations last year – have already been implemented or are in the process of being delivered.

Please complete the form below to get involved in Purple Tuesday 2019 – and to find out which support option is right for your organisation.
