About Us

The concept of Direct Enquiries was conceived by Grant Kennedy, Martin McIntyre and Chris Edwards as a response to the frustration faced by Grant’s father, who is disabled and a wheelchair user. Visiting shops, businesses and restaurants was a complete lottery for him and his family as they were constantly unsure of the welcome they would receive and the disabled access available.

The Nationwide Access Register was developed, in partnership with RADAR and Employers Forum on Disability.

The company was launched in January 2003, and currently receives millions of hits every week from people looking for accessible businesses. The team at Direct Enquiries has also grown and now includes dedicated sales, customer service, marketing, public relations, administration and technical teams.
