Web accessibility

Last updated: November 2023

Our website has been designed with everyone in mind. We’ve taken on board best practice on web accessibility, and we are working hard to make sure that everyone can access the website, including people with sight or hearing difficulties, as well as making it useable on different devices.

The web accessibility guidance we work towards is the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2 and 2.1, and The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

We believe that accessibility goes beyond legal regulations though, as it means that more people can easily access services online, which is a big deal to us.

We continue to test the site regularly to ensure the website continues to meet these standards.  Working with Ongo, we also have a number of Digital Tenants as part of our Digital Tenants programme, who suggest ways we can improve our digital channels.

According the Silktide Index, which evaluates the web accessibility of websites, we have consistently ranked as Good or Excellent for accessibility against WCAG 2.1 during 2023-2024.

We know that parts of our website are not fully accessible, including some older PDF documents. If you’re unable to access a part of our website, please contact us at PRDept@ongo.co.uk.
