This website is run by Arran Eco Savvy. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Reporting accessibility problems with this website

We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems not listed on this page or think we’re not meeting accessibility requirements, contact us.

Enforcement procedure

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’). If you’re not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Arran Eco Savvy is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance status

This website is fully compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content). 

We plan to add text alternatives for all images by December 2021. When we publish new content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards. 

PDFs and other documents

Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs of our annual accounts and AGM minutes which we are required to share.

Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.

Live video

We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.

Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was prepared on 12 November 2021. It was last reviewed on 15 November 2021.

This website was last tested on 12 November 2021. The test was carried out by From This Day digital.

To test the coding of our site we used tool called Accessibility Test.org to fully test our site and achieved a score of 89/100. We went through each of the “failures” and found that each had an alternative and accessible counterpart for assistive devices.  For example.  A “read more” button would fail for not being descriptive, but on out page we would also have a link using the full name of the article which would pass the test. Some images have failed for not having an “alt” tag in this test.

We used a tool called WebAim to test all of our content to ensure that all the text achieved an accessible contrast.
