In times of emergency, everyone is under pressure; living in fear and uncertainty. The people affected look for guidance and reassurance. People with disabilities and the elderly experience even greater stress. We can help by ensuring that important life saving information is available, and in accessible formats, so that people who are visually impaired, deaf, motor impaired, or with cognitive disabilities can access information like everyone else. The information – and the solutions offered – need to be customized to meet their needs and consents.
Purple Vest is addressing gaps, when critical information is not available. And leveraging materials of other partners, wherever it already exists. If you feel that important information is missing, or if you have important information to share,
