Creating an IT Accessibility Policy

This document is intended to give the reader guidance about what considerations they need to make when creating an IT Policy on Accessibility in their own organisation. The sections within can be used as sections in an organisation’s own policy. There are examples of policy statements that you may wish to tailor for your own use.

This document was created based on the experiences of Business Disability Forum members and is expected to be improved over time based on feedback. It includes four key themes:

• Ensuring the IT organisation recognises the needs of disabled users
• Ensuring the IT organisation knows which assistive technology disabled users need
• Ensuring that when new IT systems are deployed, they are accessible to disabled users
• Ensuring that the IT organisation can effectively support its disabled user base
