How accessible is the website

Our new website has been in place since March 2021.

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

Non-Accessible Content

We do not offer this website in different languages as Google Translate can audio translate the information within this browser. Therefore this is accessibly compliant. -Regulation 3.1.1

Language Used: Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that idioms and jargon have not been used, personal quotes in our news stories may still contain these due to the nature of our work. – Regulation 3.1.2

Documents: Some historic documents are in PDF format. They are still accessible to read but are not readable by screen reading software. Documents prior to Sept 23rd 2018 do not need to be changed. -Regulation 1.1.1
