Today we are shinning a light to recognise the UN International Day of People with Disability (IDPWD).
At Merlin we care deeply about inclusivity and as a member of the #Valuable500 we have declared publicly our commitment to continually improving accessibility for guests and employees with disabilities.
From the London Eye, Sydney SEA LIFE, Madame Tussauds Beijing, LEGOLAND Windsor through to the Blackpool Tower. Over 19 Merlin attractions around the world are lighting up purple to show our support but also renew our promises.
We are taking action, but also taking account. From continuing to focus on accessibility at our theme parks, on our rides and at our attractions, to the on-going education and training of staff in serving and working with different disabilities. We will also champion and encourage people with disabilities to join and grow with Merlin as employees.
So today we light up Purple to shine a light for the work we have done, but with the recognition that we have more to do.
Our journey continues as we develop, learn and grow.
