Feedback and contact information
Please contact us if you have an accessibility query including:
If you are experiencing issues with accessing information or using the website
If you find an accessibility problem not listed on this statement
If you have positive feedback on the accessibility considerations made.
When you contact us there is a process in place that will acknowledge your contact, tell you who is dealing with it and give you a timescale by which you can expect a reply.
If you need information in an alternative format, such as braille or a language other than English:
An English-speaker will take details of what you need and arrange a translation or interpreting service for you. You may need an English-speaking friend or a family member to help you with this.
We may not be able to meet your requirements immediately, but we will try to provide an interpreter (or translation service) to help you as quickly as possible.
Once you have reported a problem with our website or asked for an alternative format, but you are not happy with our response, you can use our complaints process to register your difficulty. This helps us improve our systems.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’).
We formally test the accessibility of key user journeys that represent the breadth of content across our website on a regular basis against WCAG 2.1 AA standards.
If you find something that does not work that we missed, remember to contact us.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
As of October 12 2020 the website is fully compliant.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
This section covers issues that we do not need to fix right now. The law calls these exemptions.
The website includes advertisements with no user controls to pause, stop and hide the content, however advertisements count as an exemption and this case applies. Third party content not funded, developed nor under the control of KCC is exempt from regulations.
Map icons to full screen, zoom out and zoom in do not have alternative text. Map does not give enough text as to the location and is not accessible by general design. However, a suitable map alternative is provided so this is classed as an exemption.
3rd Party content
Our website contains third-party content. We do not have control over and are not responsible for the accessibility of this content, but we make best endeavours to work with the 3rd party to improve its accessibility. This may include:
Links to non-KCC websites
Content/functionality on our website
Content hosted on other websites, such as social media sites.
