What is Digital Discovery?

This year, the pandemic has highlighted how important digital resources are to help us stay connected. We have relied heavily on the internet while staying home. Many everyday activities have moved online, from shopping and banking, to meetings, doctors’ appointments and virtual events. 

However, have you ever stopped to think about how normal digital activities may not always be accessible to those living with disability?

Digital Discovery reminds people how digital activities are not always accessible to people with disabilities and how we can improve this. We are asking organisations and individuals to take a pledge to leave no-one behind and create an inclusive digital community in Chelmsford. 

We must make sure that online tools are accessible for everyone, and together we can work to not leave anybody behind.

How can you get involved?

Over the coming weeks, we will be sharing stories, advice and resources around online accessibility. This will all help to give us a greater understanding and to make us more aware of the issues. All in the lead up to the Digital Discovery Day on Tuesday 9 February.

We will share all information and resources right here on our website and through our Facebookpage.


You can join our mission by pledging to become more digitally aware by pledging not to leave anybody behind. Whether you’re a business or an individual, you can sign up today.

By signing up you’ll be the first to receive updates, resources and information on the campaign as it grows.

We will publish a range of resources on digital accessibility shortly.

If your organisations runs suitable initiatives or offers support, advice or training on digital inclusion, we would love to hear from you.

You can get in touch with the team.

Digital Discovery is running as an alternative event to our annual Discovery Festival, which we are unable to run due to the pandemic. 

The Discovery Festival recognises and celebrates the International Day for Persons with Disability on 3 December. 

The event works with local organisations to raise awareness of the challenges that people with disabilities face in day-to-day life. It aims to make Chelmsford a more inclusive place to live and work.
