General

My Rights aims to ensure that its services, premises, policies, procedures and publicity materials promote accessibility for the population that it serves. We recognise the importance of enabling access to information in relation to our work which is accessible and appropriate, and we are committed to engaging with the people we work with and wider stakeholders in order to ensure we do this in the best possible way.

Our commitment to the accessibility of this website

The internet is an increasingly important resource in many aspects of life: business, employment, education, community building, government, health and social care and, of course, socialising. It is essential that the internet is accessible in order to provide equal access and equal opportunity to people with disabilities. An accessible internet can also help people with disabilities more actively participate in society.

We want everyone to be able to use our website, regardless of their ability or disability. You can get the best out of our website by updating your internet browser to the latest version.

We want to ensure our website is as accessible and as usable as possible, and we’ll constantly improve how we produce and present our content. The site was built following W3C guidance, and we’ll continue to work towards meeting best practice standards. We are also committed to provide web content to the AA standard from ISO/IEC 40500:2012 (WCAG 2.0). If you have any suggestions or feedback on our website’s accessibility, or have encountered any problems using the site, please let us know.

Our website has been built so that you can change the text size within your internet browser to a size that suits you. We are currently looking at the best way to voice enable our website and will provide an update on this in the near future. In the interim we recommend using a HTML5-based Text-To-Speech service such as Responsive Voice.
