The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’). If you’re not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).
We are committed to making our website accessible, in accordance with The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications)(No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
As part of this commitment we are undergoing a full review of the website. Our level of compliance will be detailed here once the accessibility audit and improvements are completed.
The Public Sector Body Accessibility Regulations 2018 do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
Live video streams do not have captions. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.2.4 (captions, live).
We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.

Firstly, as mentioned above, our website has undergone a full audit. This used automated assessment tools, having it reviewed by accessibility specialists, and being assessed whilst using assistive technology (such as screen readers, voice navigation and keyboard navigation).
We are now working on making accessibility improvements to make our website accessible.
This statement was initially prepared on 18 September 2020. This was updated on 21 April 2021. It will be reviewed again as work is undertaken and completed.
