"We contracted Elizabeth to advise us on our copy...
the whole team were delighted with her thoughts and suggestions,
which were presented in an accessible way." - Fran Corcoran, Amazing People Schools.
Attitude and language is a key part to being an inclusive organisation. If you don't have inclusive language in your copy, if you don't have a positive attitude towards disability in your culture, you will struggle to attract and retain disabled employees and/or clients/customers.
Did you know that 1 in 5 potential customers have a disability? And that businesses lose an estimated £2 Billion a month by ignoring the needs of disabled people. This means that approximately 75% of disabled people will walk away from a business if it isn't accessible and inclusive. This effects the Purple Pound-- the money that disabled people want to spend, but can't or won't due to accessibility and inclusion issues in business.
73% of disabled people encounter barriers when engaging with websites. This could include your website.
Did you know that nearly 1 in 5 working adults have a disability of some kind? But in a recent survey by disability charity Leonard Cheshire, it was found that 1 in 4 UK employers won't hire someone with a disability. These attitudinal barriers prevent disabled people from progressing in work, as 60% of employers believe that disabled people won't be able to do the job.
I am not here to judge. I am here to teach and inspire through engaged consultation about your language and culture in your workplace. And by improving your language and culture you will create a business and brand that is accessible and inclusive to all.
I currently offer this consultation pack:
Content Accessibility and Language Consultation Pack
I will discuss with you any concerns you have about content on your website. We will decide on which piece/s of content you would like me to review and recommend changes to. I will also check to ensure that your website is accessible for blind/visually impaired, deaf/hard of hearing people and dyslexic and neurodivergant people.
Time and fee will depend on the extent of the work needed.
