Accessibility Events 2021

Written by Ben Leach on

A list of all of the accessibility, digital or disability focused events happening in 2021

As accessibility advocates, we’re always looking for ways to celebrate accessibility accomplishments with other like-minded individuals. We’re also interested in finding new ways to share our knowledge of accessibility to the wider world. 

We have compiled a list of accessibility/disability/digital-focused events or awareness days that are happening in 2021 that can help you learn more about accessibility, or spread your knowledge to the wider community.

This will be constantly updated, so if you have any additions or corrections please get in touch 

We’ll be sharing information on these dates on social media accounts. Follow our Twitter, like our Facebook page, follow us on Instagram or stay connected on LinkedIn
