Website Accessibility Statement

The South Downs National Park Authority (SDNPA) is committed to providing a website that is accessible and enjoyable for people of all abilities.

We aim to make this website inclusive for people who have visual, hearing, cognitive and motor impairments.

To this end, we have incorporated accessibility guidelines into internal policies and also procurement practices.

Improving accessibility

We are actively working to improve our website’s usability and accessibility, to make it compliant with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, with an ambition to achieve the AA standard by January 2021. 

We will be making ongoing improvements to the website between January 2020 and December 2020 to improve accessibility and achieve conformance with with WCAG 2.1 level AA. 

Some parts of the website are already conformant but we are aware that older content pages and PDFs do not meet the standard at present
