This website  has been designed, developed and tested alongside people with a learning disability , their parents, carers and family members.

We want it to be accessible for everyone, no matter what device or assistive technology you’re using.

More accessibility features

The BBC has produced a series of accessibility guides on how to change your computer and browser settings to make websites more accessible for you.

For example, you can make your computer speak text aloud, make the mouse easier to see, and make your keyboard easier to use. Go to accessibility guides.

Accessibility testing

Our website was last tested in September 2016 by experts in accessibility, which highlighted some issues that we are working through, particularly if you use a screen-reader or navigate with your keyboard only.

We are working very hard on these areas and our goal is to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG) AA. Please don’t hesitate to contact us to request information in an accessible format. We’d also welcome your feedback - see the form below.

Would you like to be a tester?

We do regular testing with groups of people with a learning disability and their families.

If you are interested in helping us make the site accessible for more people, we would love to hear from you.

You don’t need to have any technical knowledge and we will give you all the guidance and support you need. You can do this from the comfort of your own home and it doesn’t have to take much time.
