What does great customer satisfaction look like?

AbilityNet had a very busy year during 2022, continuing its valuable work providing IT support, devices, data and digital skills to disabled and digitally excluded people around the UK.

We partner with and support other organisations, charities, government organisations, and the NHS to share our digital accessibility expertise in a number of ways including via consultancy, training and special events, to help create a digital world accessible to all.

We're particularly delighted to announce our 2022 Impact Report, which reveals really high levels of customer satisfaction across all our work with organisations and support for individuals.
