Inclusive Design Council

We inspire and support the wider industry to create experiences that allow everyone to participate equally in the digital world.

About the council

Millions of people in the UK are excluded from key digital services. The Inclusive Design Council is being established to drive understanding of the importance of inclusive design, and equip individuals and organisations with the knowledge, skills and desire to design experiences for everyone.

Inclusive design is not only an ethical and business imperative, but an engine for innovative, socially positive ideas. We want to make inclusive design the mainstream, to allow everyone to participate equally in the digital world through experiences that are not only accessible, but truly inclusive.

Council Co-Chair

Matt Roberts, Lead digital and user experience designer at Sightsavers

Matt is the Lead Digital Designer and User Experience Manager at Sightsavers, a non-governmental organisation that works in developing countries to treat and prevent avoidable blindness and promote equality for people with disabilities. His experience spans various creative disciplines, including branding, UI/UX design, iIllustration, animation and art direction, and he now focuses on accessible and inclusive design, for which he is a keen advocate. He has written for Creative Review about being a colour-blind designer, and he helped to create Sightsavers’ ‘Perspectives’ exhibition at the D&AD festival in 2018, which encouraged designers to look at the world from a different viewpoint to ensure their work is inclusive for everyone.
