Accessibility Statement

About the accessibility of this website

We have completed a full WCAG 2.1 audit for this website.

We know some parts of this website aren't fully accessible:

  • Proprietary WordPress code (used in plugins) does not meet WCAG 2.1 AA success criteria

Many pages don't meet some "success criteria" of the international WCAG 2.1 AA accessibility standard due to proprietary WordPress code (used in plugins).

While these are minor issues which we believe to have minimal or no effect on accessibility, we are keeping up to date with the WordPress accessibility community who are continuously releasing accessibility fixes.

We have a third-party Twitter plugin AccessPress Twitter Feed Pro that does not output valid code – causing several issues. We will continue to monitor and when comparable plugins provide us with an alternative, we will use them.

Alt-tags

Where images are displayed on our site we use alternative text (alt-tags) to describe the content. We recognise that in some instances these may not be very descriptive. We are currently working to provide more descriptive text where necessary.

What to do if you can't access part of this website

If you need information on this website in a different format, you can contact us: publichealth@blackpool.gov.uk

We're always looking to improve the accessibility of this website.

If you find any problems that aren't listed on this page or think we're not meeting the requirements of the accessibility regulations, email us publichealth@blackpool.gov.uk giving details of the issue and any assistive technology you are using.

What we're doing to improve accessibility

We will monitor the accessibility of this website on an on-going basis and fix any accessibility reported to us.
