Project assesses accessibility of Applications Directorate sites

A review of websites and applications under the Applications Directorate has identified sites which will have their accessibility and statements updated, as part of a current project.

The accessibility assessment of the sites was carried out in consideration of several key factors, such as the websites audience, whether the site is publicly or privately accessible, and whether users of the site will commonly have accessibility needs.

Updated accessibility statements will provide the required information for an accessibility statement including listing any parts of the site which are not accessible, information on how people with access needs can get alternatives for site content which is not available, and contact details for reporting any accessibility issues.

By reviewing and updating these sites, the project ensures that the Applications directorate websites comply as much as possible with government guidelines under the Equality Act 2010.
