Welcoming, Safe, Inclusive.

That’s what we know businesses are in the Selby area (Heart of Yorkshire).

We now want to build on that so residents and visitors alike have the confidence to enter your premises in the knowledge they will be made Welcome in a Safe and Inclusive environment, whatever industry or size of business you might be.

Many customers say they lack confidence to go into businesses due to their physical or hidden disability and at an estimated spend of £270bn in the “Purple Pound” (the spending power of those with disabilities and their families) could be lost.

We have devised a simple Accessible Charter that gives you the opportunity to take advantage of training and support required to allow you to provide all customers with the best possible service.

Do contact heidi.green@northyorks.gov.uk if you want more information or to sign up.  This is your opportunity to make a real difference, locally.

Many businesses in the region have already signed up to the charter and we showcase them below:
