Advisory Committee for Older and Disabled People (ACOD)


Functions and role

ACOD advises Ofcom about both general and specific issues concerning the communications and postal sectors relating to older and disabled people.

To take advantage of the synergy between the Communications Consumer Panel (CCP) and ACOD, and to avoid potential duplication, cross-membership of the two bodies was established in 2012. The remits of the bodies remain unchanged. This means that CCP members, in their ACOD capacity, also provide advice to Ofcom on issues relating to older and disabled people including television, radio and other content on services regulated by Ofcom as well as about issues concerning the postal sector.

Members of ACOD
