"A while ago you helped us send out information via the Action on Access mailing list about our upcoming online conference 'Opening the Doors - realising GTRSB access and participation in higher education'. Thank you so much for doing this as you helped us not only promote the event but also reach out to workshop providers and speakers."

"I’m so pleased that you have found a way to keep your invaluable updates sustainable as I would be lost without them. I am just returning from maternity leave and they have been a great way to stay informed of developments in the sector whilst I have been away. I have no doubt they will now also help me to find new contract opportunities to help me to return."

Lyndsey Smith, Founder, AltaHigher
