Making your website more accessible with Michael Chamberlain
This webinar will introduce key points of website accessibility, including website layout, keyboard and mouse navigation and forms, so that participants can ensure their online presence is accessible for disabled people.

What you will take away from this workshop:
- A basic understanding of a breadth of accessibility factors, for instance how to ensure your online forms are accessible.
- Confidence in implementing extra accessibility steps into their website and online form processes.
- Attendees will gain information about where to go if they want to extend their knowledge , so they can continue learning beyond the webinar.
This session is open to any charity sector employees and volunteers across the UK. Where spaces are limited priority will be given to grant holders of The William Grant Foundation, The Robertson Trust, Inspiring Scotland, The National Lottery Community Fund and The RS MacDonald Charitable Trust.
