LocalGov Digital South West Peer Group - Accessibility Meetup

LocalGov Digital South West Peer Group - Accessibility Meetup

Posted on behalf of LocalGov Digital

LocalGovDigital is a network for digital practitioners in local government. Its aim is to collaboratively improve council's digital service provision. The South West Peer Group has been setup to create more opportunities for localised collaboration and discussion with neighbouring authorities.

Our next peer group meetup will be on the topic of accessibility. With a new EU directive and legal obligations around accessibility looming on the 23rd September, we have less than four months left to get our websites and online services up to speed. This next meetup is aiming to offer some further insight into what designers, developers and content managers need to be considering to ensure their public facing websites comply with the new regulations.

We are really pleased to have the Accessibility Team at GDS join us to talk about their experience and offer some guidance, as well as a number of practical sessions, including a Q&A session with special guests joining us to talk about their disability and using the web.

The full agenda will be shared asap. We look forward to seeing you there!

Please note: This meeting is for staff working in public sector organisations, who are involved in creating, delivering or managing digital services. If you are a supplier who would like to be involved in future events and can help councils meet their digital objectives, please contact martin.dainton@devon.gov.uk with your suggestions.
