A practical guide to digital inclusion and accessible information for websites (Texthelp)

Digital technologies and online services are revolutionising the way we live, and we’re expected to do more online than ever before.

As more services move online and offer users the essential information they need digitally, there is an enormous risk of leaving some of the population behind - including the older population and those with literacy, language, and cognitive challenges.

Knowing how to present and offer digital information clearly empowers users and customers to navigate the online services that are increasingly becoming the norm.

In this short guide, we offer some easy-to-implement guidance for organisations to streamline their digital content into accessible, inclusive formats to benefit every online visitor.

COVID-19: Claiming tax back for working from home due to coronvirus

If your employer requires you to work at home, you can – and have always been able to – claim for increased costs due to working from home, eg, heating and electricity.

Clearly, right now many firms have closed workplaces and that means across the UK millions of staff are temporarily required to work from home, and therefore are eligible to claim for increased costs. HMRC says it will consider claims from employees working at home due to coronavirus measures if their usual workplace is closed.

COVID-19: Event Safety Alliance Reopening Guide (USA)

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS DOCUMENT IS INTENDED FOR EVENTS IN THE USA, THEREFORE THE LEGAL STATEMENTS MAY NOT APPLY

The Event Safety Alliance Reopening Guide is a collective work by event industry professionals to help our peers who are planning to reopen during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. This document contains no “best practices” that apply everywhere – coronavirus creates different challenges depending on countless factors, including the size of the event, its geographic location, the physical space, and the
anticipated attendees, to name just a few. Instead, in the order one would plan an event, we have identified reasonably foreseeable health risks and suggested options to mitigate them.
