Gloucester City Council is committed to Equality and Accessibility for everyone. We go to great lengths to ensure our website is as accessible as possible, and we include the following accessibility features:
The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) develops strategies, guidelines, and resources to help make the Web accessible to people with disabilities. Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with the Web, and that they can contribute to the Web. Web accessibility also benefits others, including older people with changing abilities due to ageing.
The website follows the World Wide Web Consortium Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 Level AA.
Maintaining an accessible site is an ongoing process and we are continually working to provide the most inclusive experience we can. However, if you have any problems, please use our online feedback form to give us your comments, views and ideas about our website.
Please note that content from external sites that we link to or present on our site may not yet reach these standards.
