Limited energy supplier options for disabled consumers

Disabled consumers in the UK experience limited decision and mindset of disempowerment when choosing utility providers.

That’s one of the bothersome discoveries of new polling by the Business Disability Forum which displays more than six-in-ten people stated that their disability or access needs had made it more harder to obtain the info they needed for their utilities.

Nearly 71 percent of disabled consumers stated that their disability or access needs has influenced their decision of provider or quantity to some measures.

Almost 62 percent said that finding and accessing the info they needed was more challenging because of their disability or access needs.

In a sweeping statement, respondents noted that more pricey providers were more accessible.

“For disabled people, the need for better access to services and products has never been more urgent. Many disabled people face additional costs associated with having a disability, Diane Lightfoot, Chief Executive Officer of Business Disability Forum, stated.

“With living costs rising, it is more important than ever that disabled consumers have the information they need to make informed purchasing decisions and to get the best deals possible.”
