Role

My role is to support organisations as they work towards digital inclusion. In doing so I offer advice, guidance and practical support that can help embed access and inclusion within policy and practice.

Inclusive practice is everyone's responsibility and as well as working with staff who have direct responsibility for equalities and inclusion, I work with a wide range of disciplines offering guidance on embedding inclusivity into everyday practice.

Background

I started my professional life as an occupational therapist specialising in the field of vocational rehabilitation supporting people with disabilities preparing to return to education, training or employment.

Before joining Jisc in 2005 I worked in the FE sector establishing and managing a large and dynamic cross college inclusion service.
