MyDonate is awarded AbilityNet Accreditation

AbilityNetA network of consumers with a diverse range of disabilities has given the MyDonate website a ‘thumbs up’ for usability, and has led to the site receiving an ‘AbilityNet Accredited’ award.
By winning this award, MyDonate has been recognised as an easy-to-use website and one that ensures a good visitor experience for everyone. It also signifies MyDonate’s commitment to AbilityNet’s best practice after certification.
Sites applying for the AbilityNet Accredited award are tested by people with varying forms of disability who can provide an authentic account of any key issues they encounter with, for example, content and functionality. Any issues identified during the review procedure then need to be resolved site-wide.
“We are thrilled to receive such recognition for the MyDonate website,” says Donna Young, CSR programme director at BT. “We have worked hard to ensure it is as user-friendly as it can be because we want as many people as possible to be able to raise money for good causes if they choose. Ultimately, this is for the benefit of everyone that the charities signing up to MyDonate are trying to help.”
Robin Christopherson, Head of Digital Inclusion for AbilityNet, says: “We’d like to congratulate MyDonate in earning an AbilityNet accessibility accreditation trustmark for its fundraising site. By providing exceptional accessibility standards on its website, MyDonate is ensuring that every user has the best and most accessible experience possible.”
