How accessible is this website?
We believe the website has a high level of accessibility, with a couple of minor exceptions described below. We welcome feedback on how to improve it.
What we do about known issues
We work to achieve and maintain WCAG 2.1 AA standards, but it is not always possible for all our content to be accessible. Where content is not accessible, we will state a reason, warn users and offer alternatives.
Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Helix Centre is committed to making its website accessible in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the known issues listed below.
Non accessible content
- A contextual video plays on the home page showing scenes of our work. This has no soundtrack, or text associated with it, and mainly serves a stylistic function.
- There a handful of PDFs on the side, including printable maps on the contact page. We aim for PDFs to aslo be accessible, but will not align to website standards
Some documents and content are exempt from the regulations (such as live video content and PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services), so we do not currently have any plans to make them accessible. But if you need to access information in one of these document types, you can contact us and ask for an alternative format.
Reporting accessibility issues
If you need information on this website in a different format like accessible PDF, large print, easy read, audio recording or braille or if you find any accessibility issues not listed on this page then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ll consider your request and get back to you within seven days.
