Cambridgeshire Neighbourhood Watch Association

Accessibility statement for CNWA

As an organisation we are guided by our values. We know that being a diverse movement and ensuring our activity and communications are accessible, inclusive, and relevant will help us make a difference for all our communities and individuals. The Accessibility Statement explains our commitment to make our internet based content as accessible to all users as possible.

This statement covers the website for the Cambridgeshire Neighbourhood Watch Association (CNWA) at

The website is run by the Executive Committee of CNWA. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
  • We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

How accessible this website is

Although we test our website carefully some parts of our website may not be fully accessible for instance:

  • the text may not reflow in a single column when you change the size of the browser window
  • you cannot modify the line height or spacing of text
  • most older PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software
  • live video streams do not have captions
  • you cannot skip to the main content when using a screen reader

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

We have tested our site on a variety of devices including desktops, laptops, tablets, and mobile phones. New devices and changes to software can make parts of the site inaccessible. If you are unable access content, please make us aware of where the problem occurred and what device you were using. You can contact us using the form at

Compliance status

Although we are not a public sector website and do not need to make our website fully compliant with the regulations, we have studied the WCAG 2.1 AA standard and aim to meet that standard where possible.

Disproportionate burden

The full standard for accessibility may, in some circumstances, be difficult to achieve without placing a disproportionate burden on us. If we become aware of changes to software or devices that will change our ability to better meet standards we will review and if necessary make suitable changes to our website.

Navigation and accessing information

We have made the navigation of our site as straightforward as possible. Content is displayed on pages which are reached from the main menu. Content is collated on relevant pages and can be accessed as required either by mouse or keyboard.

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. We plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.

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

Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was initially prepared in September 2022. It will be reviewed should there be a significant change to the software or hosting which offers new opportunities for improving accessibility or where such changes may impact on the existing provision.
