Nimbus Disability has relocated to larger headquarters to help pave the way for future expansion.

The social enterprise, which is run by disabled people for disabled people, has moved into 4,077 sq ft offices on the ground floor of Pentagon House, in Sir Frank Whittle Road.

The fully accessible offices are home to Nimbus Disability’s 28 staff who administer the award-winning Access Card, which is held by more than 350,000 disabled people and is recognised by more than 1,600 venues and events across the world who offer accessible tickets.

Many of the venues and events are seasonal such as Alton Towers and Glastonbury Festival and employee numbers are set to increase in the coming weeks to cope with the annual increase of new and renewal applications for the Access Card.

The Access Card is the first accessible ticketing scheme of its type in the world – offering a universal and consistent way of disabled people evidencing and communicating their needs to providers quickly and discreetly.

Martin Austin MBE, who set up Nimbus Disability eight years ago, said: “We have outgrown our previous offices in Pride Park and needed somewhere with the space and accessible facilities that our growing team needs.

“We have particularly seen increased numbers of Access Card applications since we were recognised with The Queen’s Award for Innovation two years ago and our members now make at least 2.5 million visits a year using this invaluable service.

“Our innovative Access Card scheme is improving the lives of thousands of disabled people across the UK and across the globe – opening up the opportunity for them to visit and engage with events and destinations and enabling them to play a more participative role in society.

“These high-quality offices will therefore pave the way for future growth as we onboard even more venue and event partners and the benefits of the Access Card are further recognised by disabled people both in the UK and abroad.”
