Empowering organisations globally to embed digital accessibility

At Hassell Inclusion we’re passionate about removing barriers in digital technology, making it accessible to everyone.

That’s why we work with you to activate and embed digital accessibility into both your organisation and products, to help you meet your business goals.

Why Digital Inclusion?

Here is a test description

At Hassell Inclusion we’re passionate about digital accessibility.

It’s about enabling inclusive web and app user experiences for everyone.

So why should you care about inclusion?

Take these 100 ordinary people…

  • 6 may have difficulty hearing this video
  • 11 may have difficulty reading or even seeing the words
  • 4 may have difficulty using a mouse
  • 18 are likely to be older and may be developing a mixture of all these difficulties
  • And these 5 people who are colour blind and can’t see the colours of these dots like everyone else, so may miss some of the information

Many more may not have an impairment but they will care about someone who does: children, parents, siblings, or a friend.

Or you may have a temporary impairment and use voice recognition if you’ve broken your arm, or when you’re cooking.

People, just like you and me, who can’t finish their online shop, research their family holiday, or do their banking on their phone.

At Hassell Inclusion we’re experts in digital accessibility.

We help you to not just fix a problem, but to embed solutions in your organisation.

Hassell Inclusion – access for everyone.

What Our Clients Say

  • We’re always eager to learn from organisations that inspire us. So we were excited about Jonathan bringing us his experience from the BBC. The lunch & learn and workshop were extremely useful and insightful in opening our eyes to what we had to gain from accessibility. It was a great start to helping us incorporate accessibility within our ways of working.
    UX designer, Global brand
  • We were delighted to work with the creators of BS 8878 to achieve our goal of compliance with such a crucial standard to include our missing 20% of users - in tandem this has allowed us to implement a solid foundation on which we can continue to develop our commitment to our wider and longer term accessibility and usability aims within our products. Throughout, it was a pleasure working with Jonathan and his team to achieve this.
    Sophie Lanc, Head of Creative Technologies, Payfont
  • Because of Hassell Inclusion’s comprehensive accessibility training, we now have a team who are far more confident on how to deliver accessible digital experiences. Our new in-house expertise means in future we can test the accessibility of all of Scope’s digital platforms without having to pay for outside help.
    Ceri Balston, Head of Digital, Scope
  • Jonathan was a pleasure to work with at the BBC. I enjoyed my time with him and he always delivered. Even under the enormous budgetary & experience challenges we faced together.
    Richard Titus, (Forrmer) Head of User Experience & Design, BBC
  • When we started working with Hassell Inclusion to help students with communication difficulties, I never thought it would give me experience and skills that would help me create innovative mainstream VR experiences for the likes of Reebok. This is where thinking differently has got us. It’s been quite some journey...
