Reasons to be

The Manchester Digital Accessibility Working Group is focussed on bringing together digital industries in the Greater Manchester region, and further afield if you're prepared to travel, for the purpose of developing expertise in accessible website delivery. We do this by sharing expert knowledge as freely as the individual member is comfortable with.

Our target audience is varied and is not restricted to technical experts by any means. We also encourage customer facing individuals. It's critical that the client understands the necessity and benefit of having a properly accessible website.

The organisation is in an infant state but already having an effect. Attendance at the inaugural event, held on 13 July at the offices of Manchester Digital Development Agency, was superb and we know that many who attended have improved their working practice and derived real benefit already.

Our next event will be at the National Library for the Blind in Stockport on the 31 August. Attendance looks like being very good and places are limited. Preference will be given to Manchester Digital members but non members will be able to gain access to the events for a nominal fee though the event at the National Library for the Blind will be free. More details of the event will follow.
