We understand different needs
What is accessibility? It’s ensuring that the things people depend on throughout their daily lives are usable regardless of whether a person has a disability. Statistics show that more than 1 billion people worldwide have a disability or an access need.
Accessibility is about making sure that everyone can partake in what the world has to offer. It's about all of us.

Navigating disability and COVID-19 for return to the workplace
COVID-19 has already raised a series of challenging issues about disability and work.
