Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Wakefield Safeguarding Children Partnership 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 non-compliances listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Some of the links used on the site don’t make sense when read alone. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion Link Purpose (in context).
Our embedded videos don’t have descriptive title attributes so assistive technology users will not be aware of their contents. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 Name, Role, Value.
Errors identification is not prominent enough for sighted users. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 3.3.1 Error Identification.
Wakefield Safeguarding Children Partnership believes all content should be accessible for everyone. We do not currently intend to claim disproportionate burden for any website content.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
Wakefield Safeguarding Children Partnership believes all content should be accessible for everyone. Documents published before September 2018 unless they are crucial to delivering a service, are not in scope of the accessibility regulations, but we intend to make all our content accessible.
What we’re doing to improve accessibility
We are actively developing this site and aim to have full compliance by the end of April 2022 and will update this statement when non-compliances are resolved.
