Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Wandsworth Council 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.
Issues with PDFs and other documents
Some of our older PDFs and Word documents do not meet accessibility standards - for example, they may not be marked up so they are accessible to a screen reader.
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they are not essential to providing our services.
We will work to ensure key new documents meet accessibility standards.
