Flare Access is inviting businesses in the Territory’s hospitality to participate in an Access Directory that will position their business in front of 20% of the population worth over $10.4 billion, simply by sharing the access details of their venues and services.
Flare Access is creating a platform (an App) to help people with disability understand what places to eat and drink are accessible for them, so they can plan and enjoy an accessible experience hassle free and with confidence.
Businesses who feature on the platform will be supported to increase the accessibility of their service helping them attract more customers and place them as leaders in their industry, boosting their bottom line in the process.
We’re currently inviting businesses who offer places to eat and drink. Please note, you do not need to offer features such as accessible toilets or accessible parking to participate in this directory, its open to all businesses.
