Could you use your skills and experience to help transform the lives of disabled and older people?

AbilityNet is the leading UK charity for computing and disability and our services help disabled people achieve their goals at home, at work and in education. We are supported by some of the biggest names in IT and have a longstanding international reputation in the fields of digital accessibility and the use of assistive technologies.

Universal Design (UD) is an approach to design that increases the potential for developing a better quality of life for a wide range of individuals. It is a design process that enables and empowers a diverse population by improving human performance, health and wellness, and social participation (Steinfeld and Maisel, 2012). It creates products, systems, and environments to be as usable as possible by as many people as possible regardless of age, ability or situation.
