About the Web Standards clinics

The clinics are held fortnightly for 2 hours on a ‘drop-in’ basis (no reservation is needed).

You can ask about:

  • web accessibility, and
  • how to implement the New Zealand Government Web Standards.

Bring your questions and challenges, general or specific, to receive advice and guidance in a supportive, informal group setting. The emphasis is on best practice and practical solutions.

The clinics are for anyone delivering digital services — public or private sector.

We hope you can join us!
