Laura and Tom - Neighbours, friends, business partners.
It has been a very exciting and rewarding journey since starting Ramble Tag in October 2018. Growing support has been very encouraging. From finalists in the RNIB Innovation of the Year awards 2019, runners up in the Blackwood design awards 2019, and a finalist for the National Diversity awards 2020, we know we are doing something right! (Yet to win any haha.) It’s not about that of course, we just want to make a positive change, and it’s great to be involved and meet others with similar goals of making a more inclusive world.
We, the Tag team, have gained the support of thousands of individuals, the RNIB and other charities and organisations all over the world.
The Ramble Tag is currently being sold in the US, and Canada, with other countries on the horizon.
This video above was made for our Kickstarter crowd-funding and shows how we got started and a little about ourselves. We have always approached what we do in a friendly personal way, perhaps a little whacky at times, but it’s thinking a bit differently that brought us together as friends and now business partners.
Together we want to make a positive contribution to the blind community, and make peoples lives that little bit easier, the way it has for us.
Where is the Ramble Tag being used?
Many airports and train stations throughout the UK are using the Ramble Tag for assistance, as well as various public spaces such as theatres, council buildings, stadiums, hospitals (as far as the Emirates) and public attractions (as exciting as the Tate galleries.)
Glasgow airport were the first to recognise the Ramble Tags benefits with their OCS teams welcoming this innovative approach to guiding.
