Go! Southampton has committed funding to help support Lets Loop Southampton with the aim of increasing the number of premises that have a hearing loop system.
Go! Southampton’s involvement will include establishing a grant for smaller businesses to install a system by offering a subsidy on the installation.
Caroline Osman of French Shoes is keen to take up the offer and said “I always thought that there was only one type of system. In fact there is a whole range – down to a loop that can be placed by the till or a portable one that can be used at different locations in the premises. This could work for many businesses.”
Spencer Bowman, Vice Chair of Go! Southampton said “This initiative can make such a difference for the experience of visiting the City and Go Southampton is fully committed to supporting this scheme and will help promote more businesses to consider a Loop system that will benefit their customers.”
