Based in Burbage, Wiltshire, Sansum & Co offer a tailored service to meet the specific needs of individuals and small to medium sized businesses. We can help you to manage the administrative burden and reduce the risk of non-compliance with the growing list of fiscal and statutory requirements.
Life can be difficult but it is far more challenging if you have a disability. Our ambition is to make the lives of people with disabilities a bit smoother by helping businesses and organisations offer greater equality and accessibility, whether they are members of staff or customers. We strive to show them how to embrace the diverse needs of people with disabilities and ensure that they are seamlessly included without barriers. All this is carried out in a friendly, professional and open manner.
This involves visiting your organisation to assess how accessible and inclusive it is. An accessibility assessment can be an important part of your risk management procedures to ensure you are complying with the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 and that you are providing an equal service to all. As well as exploring the premises and using the services, we can hold focus groups with the staff and if applicable, customers, to discover their thoughts and experiences about the inclusiveness and accessibility of the organisation. The findings of the visit will be reported and further guidance can be given to help identify improvements that can be made.
A mystery visit will provide valuable insight of the service experience through the eyes of a person with disabilities. It will give a realistic picture of how accessible the organisation is and whether it embraces the needs of people with disabilities.
During the visit we will use your premises, services and interact with your staff to gain an understanding of whether your organisation has taken appropriate action so that your business is inclusive for people with disabilities. The findings will be reported back and further guidance can be given for improvements that can be made.
