Accessibility

We want as many people as possible to be able to use the Evidence Week website, and we have tried to make it simple to use with clear design and content. We have built in accessibility from the start, and have run regular access reviews and testing. 

Accessibility is at the heart of what we do and we are committed to ensuring our site meets international accessibility standards outlined in the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1). We have carried out an access audit and used an automated validator to check the website and content, and are currently testing the site with assistive technology users. 

We will ensure the site reaches WCAG 2.1 Double-A compliance, and will publish a full accessibility statement outlining the current levels of accessibility and identifies any access problems we’re aware of. We will commit to fix any access problems by a specific date, and outline a prioritised and dated plan of action.

We are working on this now and will publish it very soon. In the meantime, if you have any queries related to the accessibility of the site please contact the Sense about Science: [email protected] with any queries.
