Osprey Charging has proudly announced its partnership with celebrated British Paralympian long jumper and sprinter Olivia Breen. The three-time Paralympian and double Commonwealth Games champion will serve as an official Osprey Ambassador, supporting its mission of providing accessible and inclusive charging for all EV drivers. 

Osprey has long been at the forefront of establishing accessibility standards and best practices within the EV charging industry. Osprey was the first CPO to sign up to ChargeSafe, a public charging endorsement body that independently inspects and rates EV charging locations for safety and accessibility.

All of Osprey’s new sites, whether high-power charging hubs or urban compact sites, are now designed to improve physical accessibility as much as possible, whilst maximising provision of charging in the space available. It also continues to work on older sites upgrading them to maximise accessibility and improve driver experience.

The live status and availability of every one of Osprey's charge points can be viewed by users of the Zapmap app and web map at any time, making planning for charging stops even easier.

"We are thrilled to have Olivia join us as official Osprey Ambassador. Her incredible achievements and advocacy for inclusivity align seamlessly with our core values," said Ian Johnston, CEO of Osprey Charging.

"Olivia is not only a remarkable athlete but also a wonderful person, and we are delighted to have her on board as a role model for women in sport and a disability advocate. Together, we will raise awareness about the importance of accessible charging infrastructure, empowering drivers with disabilities to confidently transition to electric mobility."

Osprey's dedication to accessibility also extends beyond the physical realm, encompassing improved usability, clear visual communication, and contactless payment systems to enable easy, one-handed transactions, ensuring a seamless charging journey for all drivers, regardless of their mobility challenges. 

Users can also pay to use Osprey charge points with the click of a button within the Zapmap app via Zap-Pay, meaning you can search, plan and pay for charging quickly and easily, all within one app.

"I'm excited to partner with Osprey Charging and to be able to contribute to their mission of making EV charging accessible to everyone. As an advocate for disability rights, I understand the challenges faced by those with mobility issues," said Olivia Breen, official Osprey Ambassador.

"Osprey's commitment to inclusive design and their drive to improve the entire charging experience is truly commendable. Together I hope we can inspire confidence in drivers of all abilities to embrace electric vehicles."
