Wave-length has decided to collaborate with Surrey business ‘Sesame Access’, in order to build a stronger platform for their businesses.
Sesame is a family run business managed by siblings; Steve and Alison Lyons. The company designs, builds and installs bespoke ‘invisible’ wheelchair lifts into stunning listed buildings, both in the UK and in Europe. They provide unique retracting stair lifts and invisible platform lifts to ensure that access is available to all, without affecting the wonderful interiors of those protected architectural marvels.
Sesame Access have almost 100 lifts installed in company buildings such as; Kensington Palace, Oxford and Cambridge Universities, Tate Britain and the Barbican; In fact, they are set to install their 100th lift this summer.
With both companies having such a strong passion regarding the Equality Act, managers thought of no better way to join forces and strive to make ‘access for all’ for people living with a disability.
Alison Lyons, Director of Commercial Development at Sesame Access, shared her views and excitement, working in co-operation with Wave-length.
“Sesame is really excited about collaborating with Wave-Length and already both organisations have good ideas on how this might work practically. We are all after the same outcome which is to make life easier and more accessible for people in wheelchairs. It may be early days, but I am really excited of what both our companies could achieve together.
Wave-length educates companies as well as individuals on the rights of disabled people. The company bring knowledge to employers and employees, showing that it is easier than they may think to make the workplace more accessible to people with disabilities.
There is a really strong community particularly on Social Networks such as; Twitter to promote the equal rights of disabled people. Sesame is really proud to be part of that community, of which Wave-Length is a key player. I really admire the valuable work wave-length are undertaking and how they are promoting positivity when it comes to equality.”
