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 cnwa.org.uk.
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:
Although we test our website carefully some parts of our website may not be fully accessible for instance:
If you need information on this website in a different format like accessible PDF, large print, easy read, audio recording or braille you can email us by using the form at https://cnwa.org.uk/contact-us for directions.
We’ll consider your request and get back to you within 14 days.
We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems not mentioned on this page or think we’re not meeting accessibility requirements, contact us using the using the form at https://cnwa.org.uk/contact-us.
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 https://cnwa.org.uk/contact-us.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
