New group set up in Nov 2015.

"Library Champions for Disability Access: is a new grassroots community of practice form for all information professionals which is
going to be launched later in 2015 in affiliation with ALISS

We aim to offer librarians, information professionals from all sectors an informal place to contact, meet and exchange and exchange ideas. Disability is defined broadly to include neurodiversity conditions, mental health issues, physical or intellectual impairment. We believe that library users should not be ‘disabled’ by technical, environmental or social conditions in libraries and urge all those who support this to join us to improve access for all."
