We're delighted to announce the launch of the new BCAB website!
Our previous website was nearly a decade old, but it served the association extremely well during that time. It enabled us to offer online payments, and to share knowledge and information with our members throughout the UK and beyond.
Our thanks go to Nomensa, who generously designed and hosted our website throughout this period.
We've been tweeting regularly from the @WeAreBCAB Twitter account since 2011. We've sent out nearly 5000 tweets, and have well over 500 followers, sharing mainstream and assistive technology news and information.
We're now delighted to announce that our Twitter team has grown! Meet the people who'll be bringing the @WeAreBCAB Twitter account to life each day from the 30th June onwards:

BCAB has withdrawn from the Voluntary Sector Forum. Interest in the Voluntary Sector Forum has diminished significantly. No meetings have taken place this year, reaching a point where we no longer feel it necessary to have representatives for this sector speaking on behalf of the Association.
If it is clear to the Association that the Voluntary Sector Forum becomes revitalised in the future, our current representatives are willing to represent BCAB once
again at meetings.
