Welcome to AbilityNet
  • We're delighted to share the news that both AbilityNet and our Head of Digital Inclusion, Robin Christopherson, have been nominated in separate categories for the 2015 Digital Leaders 100 awards. Make sure you cast your vote before the end of May.



  • Leading UK web hosting company, LCN.com has launched a 1p web hosting campaign to raise £15,000 for AbilityNet. The fully-featured web hosting package usually costs £50 for just a penny and customers are encouraged to donate the savings they make to AbilityNet.



  • AbilityNet conducted industry standard tests on all seven of the main party websites, including checking the code, disabled user testing and manual checks for best practice. The results are bleak for disabled people as none of the websites tested achieved legal compliance and many of our testers failed to complete the tasks we set, which included downloading manifestos and looking for policy information.



  • A survey conducted by AbilityNet shows that most people think that wearable tech like the Apple Watch could have health benefits for all, including disabled people. But the future of those devices will depend on companies such as Apple addressing deep-seated concerns about who will have access to their personal health data.
