Universal Design, also called inclusive design or Design for All, is the design and composition of an environment so that it can be accessed, understood and used to the greatest extent possible by all people regardless of their age, size, ability or disability. The Universal Design for All process prioritises the needs of users that have the more diverse abilities and characteristics, by involving users, and by using knowledge about accessibility and usability in its organisational processes and procedures.
