Accessibility Champions


The key to meeting the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations 2018, is to have strong leadership from management and accessibility champions. The topic is highly complex and has a significant strategic element. Organisations that do not build strong leadership for accessibility are bound to have it become an unfocused activity by a small number of staff, and ultimately become a significant legal and reputational risk for the organisation.

This  one day course is focused on understanding the regulations, policy, spotting accessibility risks, and how to cover all of the important management tasks to defend against legal challenges, along with embedding accessibility into strategy and policy to make accessibility a responsibility for all staff.
