Working with people and organisations to extend a warm welcome to disabled visitors, customers and clients.
Let me tell you about some of the work I am interested in. In one sentence I think it’s fair to say that I work with people and organisations to help them when considering how to include disabled people in their service offering …
What does that mean?
My work involves auditing, testing, training, advising and bespoke pieces of work to help people and organisations include disabled people in their activities.
This can take the form of helping create accessible websites, developing inclusive publications, looking at accessible environments, inclusive events, training, consultations or public facing customer care.
Or simply coming to meet you and having a chat about what you’re doing and what you want to achieve.
I have written books and publications, training courses and workshops, and provide public speaking around the themes of online marketing, using technology, and how to include inclusion for all in day-to-day work.
I been involved in the creation of websites for all sorts of exciting organisations and projects. Produced publications in braille, audio, easy read and clear print. I have written software to enable people to achieve and for tasks to be more easily managed. From databases to directories, in print to onscreen, and from large to small.
I am passionate about equality and promoting the skills, talents and aspirations of disabled people. I have been involved in creating social enterprise businesses, working with Community Interest Companies (as well as setting up and running one), have over thirty years experience in the Third Sector, and happen to be a qualified social worker, an IT specialist, and accessible information expert.
In my spare time I champion Disabled Access Day and enjoy quietly supporting other groups and initiatives who are working toward making society a more inclusive place.
