News in brief

You’re transforming the digital world

Technology isn’t as inclusive as you might think. In a survey of one million websites, 98 per cent didn’t meet accessibility standards for disabled people. With your support, we launched The Big Hack. It’s a tool for disabled people to share their experiences of using technology, so we can work with businesses to make the digital world more accessible – all because of you.

 

Thank you for helping Parents Connect

Did you know that 41 percent of parents in disabled families are not offered any emotional support during their child’s diagnosis? It’s an alarming figure, and it’s one of the many reasons why we’re so grateful for your generous gifts.

You’ve enabled us to launch a new support programme called Parents Connect, which brings together the parents and carers of young disabled people.

Thanks to you, they can talk about their experiences in weekly meet ups – sharing advice, information, reassurance and encouragement. Parents Connect offers a much needed support network and you’re a central part of the community –  because you made it happen.

 

Mindful Monsters are starting school!

Do you have children or grandchildren at school age? Or maybe you work in a school? We’re excited to tell you that we’ve adapted our Mindful Monsters activities for the classroom. It’s a fun way to help children practice mindfulness, which is shown by research to improve positivity, relaxation, creativity and concentration!
