About

Our goal is to help New Zealand companies make the digital world a more inclusive place. Making more services accessible to more people will make it easier for people with access needs. Access Advisors wants to help so that disabled people can enjoy the same opportunities as everyone else.

Access Advisors is a Social Enterprise, with up to 15% of our revenue going to BLVNZ.  We also work with people with disabilities to help our clients understand the real cost of digital exclusion.
