  • Our busy lifestyles and the ability to search for the best deals means shopping online even in summer is often the easiest option and we have all seen how this has impacted on the high-street.

    For those with disabilities and impairments, online shopping can be even more important.  According to DLF (Disability Living Foundation) there are over 6.9 million disabled people of working age, representing 19% of the working population.
