Working from home - tech solutions for disabled people

Who is helping disabled people work from home?

Webinar recording took place: 11.00 am, Thursday 26 March 2020

Due to Coronavirus, anyone whose job allows it is now working from home, many of them for the first time. There is a lot of general advice about remote working being shared but AbilityNet is keen to focus on how disabled people can remain productive.

Some people may never have worked from home before, or they may have reasonable adjustments and solutions in place in their office which aren’t available at home.

Employers are keen to ensure that every member of staff remains productive, but resources are stretched and they may not have the technical or management knowledge to help.

Our guest experts bring all sorts of practical expertise for employees and their employers - including a range of free and low-cost solutions which may be a useful stop-gap in such changeable times.

This session allowed for plenty of time for questions from the audience and the session was recorded and shared with anyone who registered.

Hosted by Robin Christopherson, Head of Digital Inclusion, speakers include:

  • Billy Courtney, AbilityNet Assessor - who provides one to one advice to disabled people
  • Jo Blood, Posture People - provide ergonomic office equipment
  • Bela Gor, Business Disability Forum, who can help with HR and legal questions
The event was delivered on Zoom and included live captions.
