The People Behind the Names
Dr Robert Gravelle, Founder
Our founder, a disabled person from birth, has a wealth of experience within the field of disability. This coupled with his energy and knowledge within the fields of Equalities Legislation and H&S regulations, as well as 20 years of practice, provided Gravelles Ltd with a solid foundation from which it has grown. His ethical approach to business and relationships is a cornerstone of what Gravelles has become today.
Although his expertise is often called upon, Robert currently holds a consultative role within Gravelles Ltd. simply because he is now sharing his experience more broadly, leading on change within National Organisations and Government, addressing the needs of the disabled community.
Rebecca Gravelle, Director
Robert’s wife took over the directorship of Gravelles Ltd In 2016. After playing an increasingly pivotal role in driving the company’s profile and developing relationships with National Organisations from a range of sectors, including NHS and Government, to retail and hospitality providers, Rebecca talking over the reigns has evolved Gravelles Ltd into the ethical model that can be seen today; as a one-stop shop for H&S.
Gravelles holds a unique perspective and expertise crafted to support the broad needs of organisations who hold responsibility for H&S within facilities Management as well as specifically specialising in Disability; encompassed in one unique package.
Rebecca’s background in healthcare and loving experience with Robert has developed her into being a uniquely experienced and knowledgeable individual. Holding a compassion, which is only gained from lived knowledge of disability, gained in this instance through love. Rebecca views business situations and clients’ requirements through an innate understanding of the needs of the customer and client with or without a disability.
“Our approach at Gravelles is to match the needs of the client with the needs of their customer, always looking towards ways that cost efficiency can be balanced with customer / user experience. In this way everyone wins, people are supported to participate and organisations have peace of mind of compliance and efficiency”.
