Inclusive Design Toolkit


This section provides further information on websites, books, conferences, training courses and organisations relevant to inclusive design and the related disciplines of ‘Design for all’ and ‘Universal design’.

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.
