What is Accessibility?

Accessibility involves making web pages more accessible to those with impaired vision (includes blindness and colour blindness), mobility and hearing impairments. Increasingly governments around the world are legislating to ensure that the web becomes more accessible to those with various impairments.

In May 1999 the World Wide Web (W3C) released a document entitled 'Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0' for the primary goal of promoting accessibility.

Governance and Planning Services (G&PS) has done it's best to ensure that our templates are compliant with these specified guidelines.

If you feel that any component of this site does not meet the requirements please contact us and we will attempt to remedy the problem.
