Compliance Statement

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1 AA standard due to the following:

Non-Accessible Content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons:

  • The initial 'skip to content' keyboard shortcut is visible only to screen readers and not the main screen browser window.
  • Some content exists on pages that are not enclosed by HTML landmarks. Most of the main content falls within the header, nav, main and footer.
Content That’s Not Within the Scope of the Accessibility Regulations

PDFs and other documents

Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with policy information and forms published as Word documents. By 31 March 2023, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.

The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. For example, we do not plan to fix the Minutes of Board Meetings prior to this date.

Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.

Live video

While live video streams are exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations, we will include subtitles and a transcript of the video when we upload it to our website after the fact.

Preparation of this Accessibility Statement

This statement was prepared on 10th August 2022.

An external accessibility audit was carried out on this website on 9th August 2022 by Internet Creation Ltd using AxeTools. This audit followed WCAG Evaluation Methodology.

We regularly test our website using our staff and award recipients to advise of accessibility issues.

Ongoing internal reviews are conducted on content published on this website as well as to the design components used to construct the site.
