Accessibility statement for the CAG Somerset website

Introduction

This website is run by Resource Futures for the CAG Somerset project funded by Somerset Council and Suez. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts using browser settings
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen using browser settings
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

How accessible is this website?

  • Our online resources are available in a variety of formats – as a web page, Word document and pdf. The content of the Word and pdf documents are identical. However, on occasion we have needed to abbreviate or alter the web page (HTML) version, for example when a document is particularly long or contains a table or form.

  • Captions on some videos are autogenerated by YouTube and may not be completely accurate.
