The Diversability Card was created in response to the exclusion disabled shoppers face on a daily basis.
Research from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has shown disabled people find shopping the most difficult experience for accessibility, followed by going to the cinema, theatre and concerts.
Research by Scope has found a shocking three quarters (75%) of disabled people and their families have left a shop or business because of poor disability awareness or understanding.
In addition to this, disabled people and their families face many extra costs. From expensive equipment to higher energy bills, disabled people and their families pay over the odds for essentials. These costs add up to an average of £550 a month and the annual cost of bringing up a disabled child is three times greater than that of bringing up a non-disabled child.
Anyone who receives one of the following benefits will be eligible:
- Disability Living Allowance (DLA);
- Attendance Allowance (AA);
- Blind Persons Registration;
- Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP).
