Inclusive Design for Vulnerable Circumstances

Vulnerability is something we can all relate to – whether it’s losing our jobs, fluctuating mental health issues or the loss of a loved one. When vulnerable we may need a different experience, different support or restrictions in how we use a product. In this talk we’ll explore what we mean by vulnerable circumstances, look at how we could build in friction for those who find themselves vulnerable and look at examples of good practice in this space.
