Purple Tuesday

Industry Event

Purple Tuesday

Date: Tue 13 Nov

The UK’s accessible shopping day

Nearly one in every five people in the UK has a disability or impairment, and over half of households have a connection to someone with a disability. Their collective spending power – the Purple Pound – is worth £249 billion to the UK economy.

However, this potential is not being fully realised. There are still real (and perceived) barriers that make it harder for disabled people to find work, spend money online and in store, and enjoy a drink or meal out.

The aim of Purple Tuesday is to make customer-facing businesses more aware of these opportunities and challenges and inspire them to make changes to improve the disabled customer experience over the long term. For more information have a read through these FAQs at purpletuesday.org.uk.

Who can get involved?

Any business or organisation that interacts with disabled customers – either at a physical location or online – the more the merrier! .
