FREE webinar: Working From Home: Tech Solutions for Disabled People

Helping disabled people who are working from home

Please note: the date for this webinar has now passed - you can access the recording and other details including the slide deck on our website.

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.

There will be plenty of time for questions from the audience and the session will also be recorded and shared with anyone who registers.

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

  • Billy Courtney, AbilityNet Assessor - who provides one to one advice to disabled people
  • Lizi Green, AbilityNet - provides practical advice at our HE Tech Demo Days
  • Jo Blood, Posture People - provide ergonomic office equipment
  • Bela Gor, Business Disability Forum, who can help with HR and legal questions

The event will be delivered on Zoom and will include live captions, Please let us know of any accessibility requirements when you sign up.
