AbilityNet, the UK's leading computing and disability charity, has grown from the six staff it began with in 1992 to its present staff of more than forty, distributed amongst ten centres serving the needs of disabled people and their employers in every part of Britain.  AbilityNet offers a complete service on the computer and information technology needs of people with disabilities, ranging from a free telephone advice service, individual assessment of needs, training and awareness programmes for employers, through to the building and home delivery of computers to meet the specific needs of an individual.  AbilityNet is supported by charitable grants from many of the world's leading computer companies, and by a wide range of foundations and trusts.

AbilityNet is registered as an independent charity.  The University of Birmingham has a place on the Board of Directors as one of the institutions which founded AbilityNet.  John Hull represented the University on the Board from its inception, and remains as a Director in a personal capacity.
