The Access Card

Access Card

“The Access Card will potentially revolutionise the relationship between providers and disabled people” – Simon Stevens

 

Overview

The Access Card has been developed by Nimbus due to demand from both disabled people and businesses, each wanting a more efficient and dignified way to communicate needs and evidence disability. We’ve also ensured that it can be used as a tool for business to promote the work they do.

We have put most of our time and effort into making it a very useful tool for those involved in the music and ticketing industries and have developed a system whereby Individuals Access Cards can be validated remotely meaning that for the first time disabled people are able to purchase tickets in one simple transaction with a provider without having to send in additional forms of evidence.

This simplification for the industry has a beneficial impact on Theatres, Arenas, Festivals. Live Music Venues, Cinemas, Sports Venues and many more.
