Web accessibility

Our commitment to an accessible website

Accessibility is the term used to describe how a product, service or place can be easily used by as many people as possible. It's about making things usable to all people, whatever their age, abilities or disabilities.

As a government entity, we're required to ensure our website complies with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0).

Under these guidelines, all information on our website must be accessible and usable for people of all abilities, including older people and those with visual, hearing, cognitive or motor impairments.

WCAG 2.0

WCAG 2.0 is a series of international standards from the World Wide Web Consortium. This organisation creates guidelines and supporting criteria for the web based on consultation with various interest groups including software developers, private enterprise, governments and members.

WCAG 2.0 identifies techniques to create and manage web content in ways that are more accessible to people with disabilities through assistive technologies like screen readers. Websites that are more accessible are also generally more user-friendly to everyone.
