How AbilityNet helped Sense to create accessible meetings guidance Sense logo. Text reads: Sense, connecting sight, sound and life, with orange and purple circle logo with the letter 'S' inside

Sense charity approached AbilityNet for help collating a set of guidance documents to organise accessible online meetings for its staff.

“We wanted to work with an external expert to review how comprehensive and accurate our guidance was, who had everything to hand in one place and who could help us make sure our meetings guidance was accessible, comprehensive, thorough and up to date.” - Alison Bennett, Director of HR at Sense
