Launched in August 2022, the TV Access Project (TAP) is an alliance of 10 of the UK’s biggest broadcasters and streamers who have pledged to work together to create a substantive and permanent structural shift in the TV industry to ensure access provision for disabled talent.

Its vision is to see full inclusion by 2030 – that is to say, a television industry where no disabled talent is ever excluded because barriers have been removed and equity created. At its heart, TAP is an ambitious co-creation between disabled people and the wider industry to deliver sustainable solutions with buy-in for and from everyone.

In this tutorial, Laurence Clark, Chairman of the Board, TripleC, outlines what TAP is, and what are the five A’s to help you ensure the full and equal inclusion of deaf, disabled and/or neurodivergent talent.
