Disproportionate Burden

  • Adaptation of the Twitter widget for full accessibility.
  • Adaptation of the Youtube embed for full accessibility.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

Third-party content

We often create content that is hosted on third-party platforms.

This includes:

  • The content we create for social media
  • Videos which we host on YouTube

We are responsible for ensuring the content we supply meets accessibility requirements; however, we are not responsible for the accessibility of the platform itself.

Preparation of this accessibility statement

We have an ongoing commitment to improving this service to make it as easy as possible for everyone to use. Any reported issues will be addressed in due course.
