Digital accessibility – online meetings and social media

Tuesday, 23 February, 2021 - 10:00 to 12:00

This programme of workshops delivered by Enhance The UK will cover a range of issues to help you deliver more accessible digital content and services.

It aims to build knowledge and skills in the region’s VCSE sector so that we can better support disabled people through our online work. Poor accessibility is a disabling barrier which impacts the lives of a vast range of people who have different impairments and health conditions. It can make the difference between getting the information, support and essential services they need, or being isolated and excluded.

Workshop 2 – Online meetings and social media

Online meetings

- Accessible software

- Top tips for accessible online meetings

- How to make your meeting slides accessible

Social media

Who should attend

Anyone in the North East VCSE sector that provides online services or information. It is especially relevant to those organisations working with disabled people.

Each of the workshops is a standalone session. However, we strongly recommend that if you want to attend any of workshops 2, 3 or 4 then you should first attend workshop 1 to get a basic grounding in principles of accessibility before progressing. 

Each workshop is two hours long and will be delivered by Enhance The UK, via Zoom.
