Enabling your business to provide inclusive and accessible experiences to your employees and customers

Living Options Devon can support you in developing your diversity and inclusion strategy and advise you on how to become a disability confident employer.

We provide access consultancy, disability awareness training, diversity and inclusion training, access audit and many other accessibility services.

Many of our services are designed and delivered by people with lived experience of disability. Our accessibility services are designed by considering our user feedback, so you can be confident that our employee and customer experience solutions are user-led. 

We provide sight, hearing, and deaf support advice to businesses, and we can also advise on access to work and reasonable adjustments. We also deliver the only British Sign Language (BSL) counselling service in Devon.

So, whether you run an office-based business, visitor attraction, warehouse or bar, we can help you become more inclusive. We can provide you with a disability access auditor, a trainer, a critical friend, or an HR accessibility advisor.

Why accessibility is good for business

Did you know?

  • 1 in 5 people in England has a disability.
  • Many disabilities are hidden, and not always physically limiting.
  • The south west has one of the highest proportions of disabled people.

Accessibility – the ability to access.  Involves us all proactively seeking to design and provide an inclusive environment for everyone.  This is achieved through training staff and creating products and services that are as inclusive to as many people as possible.

Being more inclusive:

  • Gives you access to more customers and an increase in income
  • Fulfills your legal obligations under the Equality Act 2010
  • Creates better experiences for your customers and employees
  • Provides the best service in a competitive market.  Building positive relationships

 

As your local user-led Disability Confident Leader, we have over thirty years of experience of supporting other businesses to become inclusive, disability, and Deaf-friendly. We do this through the delivery of high-quality training, services, and products, designed and delivered by people with lived experience of disability.
