The Central Coast’s leading disability and aged care provider, Coastlink, is enhancing accessibility and engagement for current and future clients, with the launch of its new interactive website this month.
Supporting over 500 people living with disability and the aged every year and employing close to 200 staff and carers on the Coast, Coastlink is constantly evolving to meet the changing needs of its growing community.
Coastlink Chair, John Mouland, says the interactive platform features a range of accessibility tools to ensure people of all abilities can connect with the site.
“It was very important to us to make sure this key communications tool can be accessed and utilised by the people Coastlink supports on a daily basis,” says Mr Mouland.
“The site features a suite of accessibility tools to assist individuals with varying abilities to utilise and interact with Coastlink in ways that best suit their needs.”
CEO, John Davis, says the new website has been designed with the user in mind and is part of Coastlink’s ongoing investment in assistive technologies.
“We wanted to create a platform that was easy to navigate, offered best practice in accessibility, and made it easier for anyone wanting to access any of our programs, activities or events to do so,” says Mr Davis.
“Current and potential clients are now able to browse all upcoming activities and events, with the ability to book and pay directly for any of these activities to secure their spot so they don’t miss out.”
“In addition to the new site, the gaming centres located at our Berkeley Vale and Woy Woy Activity Hubs will soon feature virtual reality (VR) capabilities, to offer increased opportunities for connection, stimulation and inclusion for individuals living with disability.”
