Our expertise

We have a unique perspective on the concerns, issues and aspirations of disabled people in the UK.

Disability Rights UK consultancy services provide expert bespoke training and advice to organisations within the public, private and voluntary sectors. To date we have worked with leading organisations including Lloyds Banking Group, Johnson & Johnson, Tesco, Footlocker and South West Rail. 

“We commissioned Disability Rights UK to assist us with a piece of work that would help us understand disabled customer needs. The report contained a wealth of information that exceeded our expectations in terms of insight and value. It was a pleasure working with Disability Rights UK in their professional capacity.”
