Nearly 20% of our population have a disability and they of course shop with their friends and family. Add our ageing population and parents with prams together with their friends and family, we're talking about the majority of any business customer base! Good access quite simply makes good business sense.

To become a Program Partner, businesses and organisations need to be physically accessible and willing to provide a power point so people who use electric mobility scooters or wheelchairs can recharge their battery. Even if the power point offered never gets utilised, it’s about giving people the confidence to get to and from their destination knowing they have support if needed.

Whether customers use an electric mobility scooter or wheelchair (or have a friend or family member who does), a walking frame, a pram or crutches for a temporary injury, we all benefit from and appreciate good access and a welcoming smile.

The cost to recharge an electric mobility scooter or wheelchair for up to one hour is under 30 cents. So, for a very small cost, businesses in the community can make a very big difference in the lives of people who use an electric mobility scooter or wheelchair.
