Technical information about this website’s accessibility
The National Heritage Memorial Fund is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.
Due to certain constraints, we have had to include technologies and features that may cause accessibility issues. These include:
Non compliance with the accessibility regulations
- Colour contrast (1.4.3) - hyperlinks to attachment currently have insufficient colour contrast
- Link Purpose (2.4.4 ) - on some project pages, there are some non-contextual links present
- Reflow (1.4.10) - there are reflow issues at 400% zoom and on some mobile devices
- Focus visible (2.4.7) - the focus is not clear on certain elements
The above should be resolved by April 2021.
Not applicable at the present time.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
- Our email sign-up form is based on code from a third-party application. We are looking at options to improve this
- Social media embeds (third-party map applications)
- YouTube (third-party video application), including videos generated by partners
- Grant application system (third-party database)
We are making every effort to overcome these limitations by improving their accessibility and failing that, provide accessible alternatives.
If you need alternatives versions to our downloadable documents (such as plain text or Braille) or if you experience any accessibility problems with our site, please contact us.
The National Heritage Memorial Fund does not assume responsibility for third party applications.
