About the webinar

Websites aren't always created with people with disabilities in mind. That means that people with visual or hearing impairments, physical disabilities and cognitive differences often experience barriers online. This could be because a video does not have captions, for example.

To create a website that's accessible and inclusive of everyone isn’t a simple checkbox exercise. It’s a process. After all, websites are forever changing with new images, documents, videos and content being added constantly. Maintaining digital accessibility is part of the journey too. It’s also not the responsibility of one person, but the role of many. But how can you get everyone in your organisation motivated and equipped to make a difference in the digital world?

In this recorded webinar, gain an 8 step plan to creating and managing accessible websites and content. Hear from the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), and explore how you can gain business buy-in and prioritise action.
