The types of places and organisations who use our benches...
Why schools and colleges?
...because not only is it their legal duty under the discrimination acts it also helps pupils and students who use wheelchairs to be more 'inclusive'. We now have a list of happy teachers who say their students really enjoy our outdoor furniture irrespective of age, agility or ability. More...
Why pubs and restaurants?
...because not only is it their legal duty under the discrimination acts it also helps customers who use wheelchairs feel part of the table and hence part of the company.They also look good outside the premises and it's also very good for business as happy customers are returning customers. More...
Why homes and gardens?
...because not only is it their legal duty under the discrimination acts people who happen to use wheelchairs also happen to enjoy sitting outside in fine weather, they are also appreciated in public places as well as private homes & gardens and places where care is a first priority. More...

We then thought we need to provide picnic benches and outdoor furniture for people who use wheelchairs. There is definitely a need for disabled, easy access outdoor furniture. All made robustly to take the knocks from wheelchairs and manufactured from sustainable wood from environmentally friendly sources. Thay also need to make the user feel inclusive.See Large Bench with 2 Spaces for a Wheelchair
