Linked to the social impact of a population becoming evermore diverse in age and ability, Hackcessible encourages user empowerment and independence through simple but effective 'design hacks' that aim to make day-to-day life easier to manage. Observing how people interact with everyday household designs gave the inspiration to promote ideas for better accessibility, usability and inclusive design thinking. Instead of relying on basic assistive aids to solve a problem, Hackcessible explores inexpensive and creative alternatives using ready-made domestic objects and materials. The hacks are available on the Hackcessible website for everyone to share, readapt or to invent their own. Therefore, Hackcessible is about helping people to help themselves.
