Success stories

Wheelin Cab

Gill Scrimgeour standing in front of taxi

I don't know what I would have done without the support I've received from Business Wales in getting my business evolving from an idea, to a structured plan.

Understanding the importance of having a wheelchair-accessible taxi is Gill Scrimgeour, who wanted to provide a taxi service that prioritised passengers with additional support needs.

With no previous experience running her own business, Gill required knowledge and guidance enabling her to launch her business successfully. She attended our Starting and Running Your Own Business, Marketing Masterclass and Emission Possible webinars, providing her with in-depth business expertise.

The sales and marketing were extensively discussed with her advisor, identifying the business's target market and planning a strategy to reach the right audience.

The advice has given Gill the self-confidence to start her business, Wheelin Cab. The business has signed up for the Disability Confident scheme, helping to change attitudes towards disability positively.

Would you like to turn your idea into a business plan? Our team provides fully funded specialist advice. Get Support | Business Wales (
