Who We are
Our team are all professionals who have by way of personal life changes or other experiences, have become to realise that this issue needs a great deal of work. All of us have already committed to this work individually in our own areas of expertise. We realised we needed a common platform to develop these skills towards fulfilling bigger tasks which require more resources than we can achieve alone.
Accessibility and Inclusion for All. That means what we do will benefit everyone. Persons With Disabilities, carers of PWD and EVERYONE else. Our work will always be constructive and supportive of all establishments in the efforts to achieve compliance in these matters.
What We Do
In these areas of Accessibility and Inclusion, we use many different resources to back our advocacy work. Also, these resources are applied to the advisory and educational material to enable powerful awareness and sensitisation experiences. We are continually gathering new resources to develop new and contemporary material to better carry out our awareness activities. We are committed to commissioning original research and development providing high-quality fact-based material for our cause.
In 2016 Peter Gibson was studying the various government references documents and standards and was sometimes confused by some of the very poor illustrations and diagrams that “supported” the clauses. Some of the drawings were actually significantly wrong in the way they presented the clauses. While researching this he found some better illustrations on the internet but realised that in order for the average person to understand these they needed to be easier to understand so he started making 3D illustrations to provide a better comprehension of the “look” of the compliance features.
In 2017 Peter met Prachi through a local accessibility advocacy group and as their individual work complemented each other efforts they started to collaborate. In 2018 Maitreya was contacted through common social media contacts. It was immediately obvious that Maitreya was the best possible fit for legal and advocacy work. Finally, we gelled into a working team and EMA was registered as a chapter 8 company.
