Sporting Heritage CIC has appointed digital accessibility & inclusion consultancy firm KreativeInc Agency to improve their digital presence and support their Neurodiverse Museum project.

The CIC have appointed the neurodiverse mother-and-son team, Caren Launus-Gamble and Callum Gamble, at KreativeInc Agency to deliver a consultancy brief to improve the organisation’s digital inclusion status. KreativeInc Agency will be training staff, partners and network members in web accessibility and offering hands-on support on implementing the recommended strategies.

Sporting Heritage Founding Director Justine Reilly said: “We are delighted to be working with Caren and Callum. We are passionate about ensuring sporting heritage is inclusive and something everybody can enjoy and participate in– both virtually and physically. Working with KreativeInc Agency we will be supporting our colleagues, networks and members to help make our digital presence as accessible as possible.”

Caren adds: “Web accessibility and neurodiversity are not tick-box exercises but important parts of a continuing process in allowing the UK to become a level playing field that is accessible to everyone irrespective of their physical or cognitive differences. We are very happy to share our expertise with Sporting Heritage CIC on two projects that will go a long way in helping to make our society more inclusive."

Also included in the brief is an advisory function in supporting the Neurodiverse Museum research project lead by Sporting Heritage who will be working in partnership with the British Golf Museum, Leeds Museums and Galleries and Swathmore College to develop the understanding within the museum and wider heritage sector on how to include, rather than exclude autistic individuals as both audience and workforce. KreativeInc Agency will deliver a range of resource recommendations for the sector and its neurodiverse visitors.
