Selected Case Studies

The RSPCA came to Access for All for help with their local stores, and achieving something new for the public to engage with. We quickly set to work restructuring the stores, training staff and revamping the look and feel, including point of sale. The ideas featured on ITV’s daybreak and were quickly a success.

Our team also created characters (shown here) to work with the RSPCA brand and assist in marketing and promotion of the stores. We list forthcoming events on our websites and social media, and Founding Partner Kate Hardcastle has become a patron of the organisation.

Performing Arts etc is the brainchild of Sam Dunkley, a proven community musician, who needed help with launching his idea, a name and a look and feel.

Performing Arts etc works to build creativity and confidence – and Sam could concentrate on doing what he does best, whilst we created the brand, a website with online ordering and continual promotional literature.

The success has seen Performing Arts etc expand to several colleges, and increase their offering in terms of courses.

Access for All runs free workshops to help smaller businesses get advice and resources they would not usually have access to. The session above saw a special guest attendance from Nick Clegg MP.

The Deputy Prime Minister described the session in Yorkshire and those involved as ‘inspirational’ and ‘inspiring’.

And those involved praised the scheme: “Thank you so much for the amazing opportunity today” “Really useful and I highly recommend it to other small local businesses” “Spent an hour with 10 businesses talking to Nick Clegg about business. Massive thanks.”
