Accessibility statement for Census Education

This accessibility statement applies to censuseducation.org.uk.

This website is run by Office for National Statistics (ONS). We want everyone who visits censuseducation.org.uk to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding. We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience.
We actively work to ensure that this website is accessible and usable by people of all abilities.

For example, that means you should be able to:

  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

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

To help us make the website a positive place for everyone, we've been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities and user friendly for all people.

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

Please tell us the web address (URL) of the content, your name and email address and the preferred format. We will reply within five days to let you know when we will be able to provide the information.
