The A11y part of our name is a niche reference to Jemma’s love of all things technology and social media!
When Twitter was first launched users were limited to 140 characters meaning individuals had to find new ways of communicating and condensing longer words. The term A11y was organically created to mean accessibility with the number 11 representing the eleven missing characters.
The abbreviation is still used today online and on Twitter (even though we now have more characters) Jemma chose to use the abbreviated term as recognition to the pioneers who have gone before her highlighting issues of accessibility and inclusion online.
Jemma has an interest in the theology of disability, mental illness, chronic illness and suffering. As such she volunteers her time in a number of ways to help out and advise churches locally and nationally. Jemma is incredibly passionate about breaking down barriers that prevent people from accessing church be that in person or online.
Jemma is able to review policies and buildings to highlight potential accessibility issues and best practice. She has a wealth of experience, living with severe visual impairment, PTSD and several chronic health conditions gives her a unique and varied perspective. She is an outside the box thinker who prides herself on her ability to creatively problem solve.
