During disasters and emergencies many people with disability experience additional challenges and disadvantages, especially when they don’t have the resources for a phone, computer or the know how about being online.

Critical to helping decrease this risk and increase safety is having access to devices, data and the skills and knowledge to use it – especially during a disaster or COVID-19 pandemic.

Being online is important. Its how we get news, information, ask for help or resources and keep getting the essential goods like food and medicine and stay connected to family, friends, services and supports people need related to their disability.
