Government Communications teams regularly engage with disability charities as well as a wide range of stakeholder groups in order to better understand and manage those varying audiences' needs and preferences.

The Government’s response to COVID-19 significantly improved our overall communications approach in providing important public information to a wide range of audiences, including those with disabilities. As an example, key government publications on COVID have been published and made available in accessible formats, and communications materials have been made available in formats such as large print, BSL, audio and video.
