Continued growth in our trading arm
WDP's social enterprise, the Disability Trading Company has grown by 18% during the past year.
Comercial Director Gavin Thompson said, It is clear to see that a number of factors have contributed to our continuing growth. This includes several new initiatives that have complimented the hard work and dedication of the team. These initiatives include, free three months insurance on high cost sales, 0% interest rate credit, improved signage, new furniture and fitments, new layout in the reception and moving the switchboard at the CIL, new promotional materials, strong focus on community engagement and new advertising highlighting that all profits go to WDP. Together they have culminated in higher footfall and increased sales across our services.
The story of our journey of developing WDP and DTC has recently featured in two national magazines, THIIS and Access and Mobility Professionals, both leading trade magazines carried multi-page articles, with further coverage on social media.
