Stat of the day: Disability-smart Barclays

By Angela Matthews 

Some interesting figures that I’ve pulled directly from a newspaper article today. The article is about how seriously banks are taking disability.

The statistics are from Barclays as per September of this year. Out of their 22 million customers:

  • 15,343 have requested large print;
  • 1,511 have requested audio versions;
  • 1,234 are using Braille print;
  • 600 are using high-visibility debit cards.

I thought those figures were interesting as we have sometimes had discussions on the advice line with members asking if the numbers of people needing these types of adjustments are “not very many”.
