People's Parking is delighted to have awarded NCP with their 300th accreditation. It is an amazing achievement to have so many car parks reaching our standards and shows considerable commitment and dedication by NCP to improving their car parks for motorists.
People's Parking, founded by disability rights campaigner Helen Dolphin MBE in 2016, works to improve car parks for customers by celebrating those with facilities at a set standard for disabled people, parents, commuters, cyclists, motorcyclists, EVs and those who drive wheelchair accessible vehicles or camper vans.
For car parks to achieve the accreditation they need to demonstrate good signage and pedestrian routes, be well lit, clean and managed. The location of the car park is also noted to help people find parking near to where they want to go as well as what payment options are available.
Helen Dolphin MBE, Director of People's Parking, who is also a quadruple amputee and disability campaigner, said: “I am thrilled that NCP has achieved so many People's Parking accreditations as it demonstrates their commitment to improving their car parks for everyone. Although many of their car parks had facilities for different customers they were not necessarily at our required standard, and it has taken a lot of hard work to get them People's Parking ready. In some cases this has meant re-painting bays and installing new equipment. As well as putting their car parks into my scheme I've also helped train NCP staff in disability equality, and I have no doubt that their customers will benefit from this increased awareness.”
Jonathan Scott, CEO of NCP said “I am delighted NCP is leading the way on supporting this important initiative and that through our collaboration with People's Parking, we have over 300 car parks already accredited to the standards required. We're committed to improving the parking experience for our customers and will continue our efforts by adding more car parks in the coming weeks and months”.
Many other car park operators are in the scheme but none have achieved quite the number of accreditation's as NCP. For more information about People's Parking, please visit www.peoplesparking.org.
