Creating an accessible and inclusive website 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 webinar, we’ll walk you through an 8 step plan to creating and managing accessible websites and content. Together with the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), we’ll explore how you can gain business buy-in and prioritise action. And offer our best tips to creating accessible and readable content.
