Technical information about this website's accessibility

Glasgow City Council is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances and exemptions listed below.

Non-accessible content

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Pages don't scroll in two dimensions on small screens -WCAG AA 1.4.10
Fix duplicate form IDs - WCAG A 4.1.1
Some PDFs not accessible - WCAG A 1.3.1
Ensure text has sufficient contrast - WCAG AA 1.4.3
Ensure links are distinguished by more than just colour - WCAG A 1.4.1
Ensure links can be used by screen readers - WCAG A 4.1.2

We are working to fix these problems by April 2021.

Content that's not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

PDFs and other documents

Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access our services, and forms published as Word documents. By April 2021 we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.

The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they're not essential to providing our services. For example, we do not plan to fix minutes of meetings prior to this date.

Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.

Live video

We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.

What we're doing to improve accessibility

An accessibility roadmap will be available soon that shows how and when we plan to improve accessibility on this website.
