Alert message

Welcome to our brand new ACCAN website!

We hope that the new site will be an excellent resource for consumers, our members, industry, regulators, government and the media. It contains news items, tip sheets for consumers, policy submissions and position statements, our grant projects and research documents. There’s a special area for ACCAN members and an events page to keep you up to date with what’s going on in the sector.

One area of the site we’re particularly excited about is our Campaigns page. Please take the time to look around and try out our new features like the Share your story tool or the 'Act now!' campaigns button.

As part of our commitment to demonstrate and advocate for best practice in accessible communications, we have worked with our site developer Energetica to ensure our site conforms to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 level ‘AA’. This means that you are now able to resize text without assistive technology, easily navigate the site using a screen reader and that content is operable using a keyboard as well as a mouse.

On top of this, we will continue to provide an Auslan translation of media releases and special content related to our work on accessibility. You can view past examples of our Auslan content on the ACCAN YouTube channel

If you have any feedback about the new site we’d love to hear from you, so if you spot something that doesn’t look quite right please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Compliments also welcome!

Best regards

The ACCAN team

PS We’re also launching an exciting new campaign in the coming weeks so make sure you come back and visit us soon.
