This statement applies to

This website is run by the Voice and Participation of the Early Help Service within the West Sussex County Council (WSCC). We want as many people as possible to be able to use it.

This blog site uses the accessibility that WordPress have to offer which can be found here:

Issues with PDFs and other documents

Many of our PDFs and Word documents don’t meet accessibility standards – for example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader.

Some of our documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how people can access our services and forms published as Word documents.

We have created a register of files which are essential for service delivery and are working through these to create HTML pages and accessible documents.

We understand that the accessibility regulations don’t require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. However, if you need information in an alternative format, please contact us.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

We are working to resolve all identified accessibility issues which are within our control by 23 September 2020.

Our services are also working with suppliers to resolve any identified accessibility issues where we do not have direct control over their product.
