    DENW’s New Digital Project Needs your Input!

    Posted in DENW

    DENW are currently working with DigiEnable to look at ways in which technology can be used to make communication with, and between, people with disabilities better online…and we need your help.

    Here’s a note from the DigiEnable team…

    “You see, we’re really good at running consultations, and developing ideas, but you know a lot more about the needs of people with disabilities. So, we’re going to run a couple of quick Zoom sessions at the end of the month, to ask you, what sort of questions we should be asking to find out the type of support that is needed, and the language which should be used. We’re also going to delve into some ideas around advertising and how to get more people outside of the current membership involved.”

    Your input will be invaluable!

    If you are able to help us out and would like to have an input into the way this project develops, then please register yourself on one of the two sessions below…

    If you can attend Monday 30th November at 1 pm-2pm, please register here

    If you would prefer an Evening meeting, on Wednesday 2nd December 6.30-7.30pm, please register here

    We would really appreciate your support, in helping produce some really meaningful results and these two meetings are the first steps.

    If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us at
