Our Brief

Statistics reveal that approximately 15% of the population is neurodiverse which may impact an individual’s ability to read and understand online information. Since taking over the Athletes’ Village for the London Olympics and Paralympic Games, Get Living has put accessibility at the forefront of their physical and digital spaces.

Client Testimonial

"Since taking over the Athletes’ Village for the London Olympics and Paralympic Games, we’ve continued to design and build our homes, communal areas, and public realms with accessibility at the fore. Creating places where people feel welcome and safe is key to helping communities within our neighbourhoods feel as inclusive as possible. Not only must our physical spaces feel accessible and inclusive, but also our digital spaces. The Recite Me accessibility toolbar removes many of the barriers that those who are neurodivergent or visually impaired come across when navigating online. Launching the toolbar on our website is our first step towards ensuring an enhanced accessible digital experience across our key touchpoints. "
