About the community

Accessibility legislation requires public sector websites and mobile applications to meet clearly-defined accessibility standards.

We are supporting you and the further education and higher education sectors by providing practical resources and expertise to help you meet the deadlines. Read more about the new regulations and how we can support you.

As a next step, we are also helping members to learn from each other’s experiences of implementing the legislation in their own organisations.

Join the community

The Microsoft Teams site is a friendly, supportive space for everyone, at whatever point you are on with your accessibility journey. There are opportunities to work together to crowdsource useful resources and information. For best results, sign up using a Microsoft email account.

Request to join the community through our sign up form.

Other ways to get involved

Join a drop-in clinic

Drop-in clinics take place in Zoom, but you can continue the conversation, or suggest new topics for clinics, in Microsoft Teams.

Recordings of past clinics are also available to view on-demand.

Find out more about the next drop-in clinic.

Be part of the conversation on JiscMail

The digital accessibility mailing list is a place to ask questions and connect with others who are working towards making their websites and apps compliant.

Members are keen to help with your accessibility questions and it's a great place to find out about learning opportunities.

Host a local meetup

We will also be asking members to come forward to host local meetups.

We will be able to support your meetup by promoting it with other members, helping to shape the agenda and supplying refreshments. As the host you will provide the space and chair the meeting.
