What are we doing?
Our aim is to make our website as accessible as possible to the widest range of visitors and customers. This means considering the specific needs of those with visual or physical impairments, learning difficulties and other forms of disability. In addition, it means having an understanding of different browser technologies. Our site has been produced to meet current best practices and guidelines.
To help us make the BPB16 website a positive place for everyone, we’ve been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user-friendly for everyone.
The benefits of this approach:
- The site is available to as wide an audience as possible and across a variety of technologies.
- The site meets guidelines for those users who may have impairments and difficulties using the web.
- The site loads more quickly and uses less bandwidth.
All websites through which a Public Authority offers services or information to the public need to comply with the Equalities Act 2010. The Equalities Act was introduced with the intention of comprehensively tackling the discrimination which many disabled people or others having ‘protected characteristics’ under the Act face. The Equalities Act replaces the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 and the duties imposed thereunder. Websites must be made accessible under the Act and comply with all relevant Codes of Practice or other Statutory Guidance which may be in force from time to time.
