Compliance Status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 ( AA standard. The elements we have identified for further development are listed below:

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

* WCAG 1.1.1 Documents: Some historic PDF documents are in PDF, they are still accessible to read but are not readable by screen reading software (docs prior to Sept 23rd 2018 do not need to be changed)

* WCAG 1.1.1 Non-text Content - the Twitter logo across the site does not have alternative text.

* WCAG 2.1.1 Keyboard - the accordions on the 'Making a complaint' page are not keyboard accessible.

* WCAG 2.2.2 Pause Stop Hide - the carousel on the Home page cannot currently be paused.

We are working through all pdf documents to ensure they are all readable by screen reading software and also working to make technical changes to address other non-compliances. This piece of work is expected to be completed by the end of March, 2023.

We are commissioning a new website which is due for completion in the Summer (2023). The website will be built from the ground up - accessibility is a key requirement of the contract and the aim is for the new website will be fully compliant with regulations.
