100622 UK Disabled Peoples Council Website Event: Website Costs and Funding

594 views

Published on

A presentation that accompanied a workshop I ran at event run by the UK Disabled People's Council.

It was all about websites for Disabled People's Organisations, which are independent networks of people with disabilities form across the UK.

I talked about how much websites cost and how to draft a brief to work with a web designer - whether that is a volunteer or someone you're paying.
