Parts of our site that are not fully accessible - exceptions

Whilst we try to meet the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. The following parts of the site are not level Double-A compliant.

On our website

Some of our own web applications need improving and we are working through these. Some are old software that we cannot easily change.

From external websites

Some parts of this site link to or use content provided by other websites and these are not always as accessible as our site. Examples of these are:

  • videos from YouTube
  • tweets and the Twitter panels from Twitter
  • maps from Google.
