Council website is 'outstanding achiever'

Published on Friday, 23rd April 2021

After a year of monthly accessibility testing, we are delighted to announce our website has been ranked 6th out of 412 county, district and borough council websites and an 'outstanding achiever'.

By making our website accessible, we are ensuring that all of our customers, including people with disabilities, have a good experience using our website and are able to easily access our information and services.

Just a few of the things we do to make our website accessible are:

  • Making sure all images have alternative text descriptions
  • Making sure links are descriptive and unique
  • No broken or out of date links
  • Making sure there is a good contrast between text and the background

This fantastic achievement is down to our content editors, website system suppliers Jadu for the fabulous site and testing company Sitemorse who highlight areas for improvement; you're all 'outstanding achievers'.
