This accessibility statement applies to [site]

We aim to make the website as accessible as possible. Content is structured logically and contains alternate descriptions where appropriate. No content exists on the website which would require a visual queue to access. The website is navigable via a range of technologies.

We have used the GOV.UK design system ( to build the website because of its focus on accessibility.

This website is run by Local Authority Technology CIC. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. This means you should be able to:

  • Navigate the website using just a keyboard.

  • Navigate the website using speech recognition software.

  • Listen to the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver).

  • Zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen.


To help make the website even more accessible:

  • We’ve made the website text as simple as possible to understand.  

  • We omit animated components like carousels from the website.

  • We never use imagery or colour to signpost content - just text. 

AbilityNet ( has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
