Who benefits from inclusive communications?
There are over 10 million disabled people in Britain. Government communicators must be confident their message will reach everyone. This can be done by ensuring all communications are inclusive and accessible.
The Office for Disability Issues (ODI) can help government communicators:
- involve disabled people from the start of any project
- make sure disabled people are represented positively
- create accessible communications
- access a library of free images
- deliver accessible online video and podcasts.
