Supporting National Inclusion Week (28 September 2020)

Today marks the start of National Inclusion week - a celebratory week that recognises and promotes inclusion.

Health in Mind is proud to share, promote and inspire inclusive practices and culture to create a better environment for all. The theme for National Inclusion Week 2020 is ‘Each One, Reach One’. It’s about the opportunity we all have to reach out and connect with someone else, to help them understand the opportunity being inclusive provides.

This year there has been a significant shift to home working and an increase in online activity due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This has meant charities have needed to act quickly to ensure that all of their staff and people using their services have the tools and support they need to access information easily.

To support all our website visitors including people with disabilities, learning difficulties, visual impairments or people who speak English as a second language, we provide Recite Me accessibility software across our digital landscape.

With Recite Me, we are part of a shared mission to create an inclusive digital world enabling everyone ease of access to our online information and resources.  Over the past 12 months together we have seen over 2million people using the toolbar, viewing over 10million pages in a way that best suits their individual needs.

Alana Genge, Communications Manager at Health in Mind said:

‘Being inclusive is one of our values at Health in Mind. We work to break down the barriers which prevent people from accessing resources that could improve their mental health and wellbeing.

We added Recite Me to our websites in April. When visiting our websites people are able to use our suite of accessibility tools to create a unique user experience. These tools include, text to speech functionality, fully customisable styling features, reading aids and a translation tool with over 100 languages, including 35 text to speech voices and many other features.

Together we can build an inclusive online world. This starts by creating awareness on an individual or organisational level, and helping others to understand the opportunities presented by inclusion, we can all make a positive difference.’
