Founding Members: AbilityNet

Assessments for individuals, whether they are in work, education or at home. The assessment provides advice and guidance on how an individual can best adapt their technology or ergonomic environment to meet their individual needs.
Accessibility consultants advise and guide organizations on how to deliver their systems, services, content and technology so that it is accessible and inclusive to meet the needs of the disabled, elderly and those with limiting health conditions.
We also provide a range of free services to help those most in need:
Advice and Information through a free phone helpline and online fact sheets and other resources
Assessments in home for those not in work or education
In-home IT support to help resolve technical issues
Provision of IT expertise and projects to other charities, voluntary organizations and community groups to enable them to better deliver and serve their end beneficiaries
Why AbilityNet Became a Founding Member
We believe in the need to professionalize accessibility and those working in the field so that the need for and benefit of inclusion and accessibility is recognized and therefore all digital technology, systems, services and content are accessible for all.
