Disability Council launches new user-friendly website

25 March 2013



Minister for Disability Services Andrew Constance has launched the new-look website for the Disability Council NSW, describing it as an important tool for people with disability.

"The Council's revamped website will help raise community awareness about people with disability and their aspirations. There will be inspiring stories on the site which give a unique perspective on the issues facing people with disability and also enables the broader community to become aware of disability issues," Mr Constance said.

"The new website is a wonderful way to promote the achievements of people with disability, while highlighting the key disability issues and reforms being undertaken by the NSW Government."

Disability Council NSW Chair Cain Beckett is thrilled with the modern, fresh look of the website.

"The Council has made every effort to ensure the website is accessible and easy to navigate, while improvements will continue to be made," Mr Beckett said.

"The new design uses high colour contrast to increase accessibility for people with a visual impairment and there is also a ReadSpeaker text to speech tool and improved search functionality."

Other features of the site include a focus on disability issues and government activities in NSW in which the Disability Council is involved, an engaging 'story' section where individuals can reflect on how issues affect them personally, and written submissions the Council has prepared.

The Disability Council NSW is the official advisory body to the NSW Government, providing independent advice on matters that affect people with disability in NSW.
