Australian Access Awards 2023 finalist

The Accessibility and Inclusivity Toolkit is a finalist for the Government Website of the Year at the Centre for Accessibility Australia Access Awards 2023! These awards have been honouring organisations and individuals who show exceptional dedication and achieve remarkable results for Australians with disability since 2019.

Congratulations to the Accessibility NSW team. Let's continue working together to build a more accessible and inclusive world!

Getting started

Accessibility NSW is leading the way in ensuring NSW Government teams design and deliver products and services that meet the needs of all people and abilities no matter the situation.

In this Toolkit, you can find the resources, tools and training needed to help you meet accessibility guidelines and ensure your services are available to everyone, regardless of any disability they may have.

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) are the international standards that show teams how to build products and services that are accessible for every person, no matter their abilities or circumstances. In NSW, you should be aiming to meet the current version at Level AA.
