Client Testimonial:


"I would like to thank you and your team for the tremendous effort that you have put in to assist this Service in undertaking the most comprehensive freedom pass renewal exercise ever undertaken which has resulted in a reduction of nearly 1000 previous holders having been moved off the Disabled Persons Freedom Pass scheme.


Whilst the initial charges for the additional assessments undertaken will impact on our budget this year, the reduction in numbers of Disabled Freedom Pass holders should result in a saving to this Authority in the longer term"  Terry Collins, London Borough of Tower Hamlets 2015
