Accessibility Statements

Colleagues who need to create an Accessibility Statement for their website or app can use this Accessibility Statement as a template. Text in bold will need to be amended with your own details as will any examples provided. The process for users to request alternative formats and/or make complaints is under development. The document will be updated to reflect changes. 

A link to the Accessibility Statement must be prominently displayed on your website or app, e.g. in the footer.
