Vulnerable Customers

Bakare Beds pride themselves on exceptional customer care and are committed to treating vulnerable customers fairly, consistently and in a way that considers their individual needs. It’s our belief and understanding that every customer may at some stage be considered vulnerable, and it’s our aim to help ensure all customers consistently receive fair outcomes when dealing with us.

How we support vulnerable customers

We recognise the importance of identifying vulnerable customers and ensuring that they receive the appropriate treatment on an ongoing basis. We encourage our customers to talk to us about their circumstances, so that we engage with them correctly and handle their information in the right way.

Identifying vulnerable customers

Where a vulnerable customer is identified, our systems and internal processes are sufficiently flexible to ensure the customer’s individual needs are considered in an appropriate and sensitive manner. Our employees have received specialist training to agree and determine the most appropriate action required.

We will explain to the customer what information is being recorded and for what purpose their information will be used. More information as to how we use customer’s information can be found in our Privacy Policy.

Other Individuals Present

Where an assessment, demonstration or sales discussion is taking place in-person, we actively encourage any vulnerable customers to have a relative, friend or healthcare professional (such as an occupational therapist) present.

Background Checks

Bakare Beds perform Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks on all it’s customer facing employees in order to check criminal records.


Bakare Beds is committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure of data, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
