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’).

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
There’s no way to skip the repeated content in the page header (for example, a ‘skip to main content’ option). This fails WCAG 2.4.1(bypass blocks)
Navigational elements are currently not highlighted on focus. This fails WCAG 2.4.7 (focus visible)
Colour used for links in main text content areas has a low contrast ratio with the default site background colour, resulting in possible reading issues for some users with partial vision. This fails WCAG 1.4.3 (minimum contrast)
Some areas of text have a low contrast ratio between the text colour and the background colour, resulting in possible reading issues for some users with partial vision. This fails WCAG 1.4.3 (minimum contrast)
A large number of links to related information have duplicate/non-descriptive link text. This fails WACG 2.4.4 (link purpose)
Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 1.1.1 (non-text content).
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

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