The digital world is a rapidly changing environment that all of us increasingly rely upon, but for people living with disability much of the Internet remains inaccessible. Media on Mars are incredibly proud to be involved in a partnership with DADAA and Dr. Scott Hollier that has delivered the Centre for Accessibility and directly responds to the need for greater awareness of digital access.

Yesterday, Wednesday 6 June we launched the Centre for Accessibility  at DADAA’s Fremantle Hub. We’d like to extend a warm thank you to Hon. Stephen Dawson MLC, Minister for Disability Services and Environment, who officially opened the Centre. Thanks also to Olman Walley for his Welcome to Country, and to Helen Errington for speaking. Over 120 people came out on the drizzly Perth morning to learn about the Centre, engage with access specialists and try their hand at using assistive technologies.

The Centre’s hope is to actively connect those with disability who rely on digital access with the disability agencies who support them. We welcome all to the Centre as partners, participants and co-drivers into the future. You can take a look at the website, now live, at accessibility.org.au.
