Joshue O Connor to be Head of Accessibility for GDS in the UK

InterAccess are really happy to announce that Joshue O Connor will be interim Head of Accessibility for Government Digital Services (GDS) in the UK.

I’ll be looking after things for the right hon Alistair Duggin @dugboticus, as the lead GDS subject matter expert (SME) on accessibility. I’ll be also be working on policy relating to the UK adoption and implementation of the EU Web Accessibility directive.

It’s fantastic to have an opportunity to work in such a progressive and diverse environment. GDS is a game changer in terms of effective service design and provision and I look forward to both learning and contributing a lot.
