Accessibility

Thanks for coming to our website to find resources for advance care planning.

Not only do we want you to find everything you need for advance care planning here, we want this website to be usable, whatever your abilities or disabilities.

To do this, we strive to comply with the W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.

Our site has been designed to be compliant to Level A of the Web content accessibility guidelines (WCAG 2.0) standard. Our website is currently being reviewed and refined to ensure all aspects meet Level A compliance, and we aim to achieve Level AA compliance over time.

Limitations of this site’s accessibility 

While we’ve created this website to be usable across many devices and platforms, we understand there may be limitations and are refining and improving the site's features and functions over time to address these.

We’ve tried to make this site accessible for as many people as possible. Please contact us if you experience any problems using this site.

We aim to communicate clearly, and as simply as possible – however, some of our resources may contain terminology or information that requires a significant level of medical understanding due to the nature of what they are about.

Some of our resources contain multimedia components such as video. We are working to add captions, text transcripts and descriptions to this type of content.

Some of our resources contain materials (including PDF) which are owned and hosted externally, and these may not adhere to the same accessibility standards. Please email us if you have any difficulties accessing any information on this website.

This site has been optimised to work across all modern browsers, and it is recommended to use Internet Explorer 11+, the latest Firefox and Chrome versions for optimal performance. 

While the site has been created to be as accessible as possible and has been reviewed by accessibility experts, some of the website has not yet been fully user-tested with people who have disabilities.
