What We’ve Done – Access All Areas

What We’ve Done

We’ve trained production and casting teams, coached learning disabled and autistic talent on-set, and co-created scripts and productions. We have ongoing relationships with Netflix UK and Sky Studios, and have worked with BBC, ITV Studios, Channel 4 and many more.

Here’s a taste of some of the screen productions we’ve worked on.

Netflix UK

Our ongoing partnership with Netflix UK sees us work on many of their most high-profile productions.

We train production teams in access and inclusion, provide support staff for disabled talent, and consult across productions from start to finish.

We also work with Netflix UK teams away from productions, helping them to build processes that support all staff and talent.

  • Rehearsal techniques for accessible working with scripts
  • Creative Coaches Jess Mabel-Jones (rehearsals, shoot and post-production) and Gemma Harvey (rehearsal), who worked with the lead actors throughout the process, and worked with the production team to assess and adjust support.

Sky Studios

We’re partnering with Sky Studios from 2017 – 2024 to deliver our Diploma, most notably developing an accessible Writer’s Lab to give learning disabled and autistic talent a voice in TV scripting.

In their final year on the Diploma, students work with executives and creative teams from Sky Studios to create High-End TV pitches. This has helped to inform our approach to co-creation and accessible writer’s rooms, leading to more neurodivergent involvement in script creation.
