Accessibility statement for your website

It is best practice to include an accessibility statement for your website on your website. This statement will explain the current accessibility of your site, where improvements can be made and how you will work towards them. For step by step information on what to include in a statement see the Government’s accessibility statement guidance, or you can use a accessibility statement generator which will generate a statement about your website based on information you provide. The statement should be included on your website.
