This accessibility statement applies to

This website is run by Coping with Cancer North East. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • We have built our site to be as accessible to users as possible. We’ve designed it in accordance with guidelines laid down by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI). This site aims to be fully compliant with all the guidelines.

    Designing with all users in mind

    We are always looking for ways to improve our website and make it easier to use. We have tried to:

    • Use meaningful ALT text for all images and hyperlinks to provide descriptive text
    • Use the correct colours for our background and our text.
    • Use an easier to read non-serif font type and size that will scale when you make the text bigger

    We are also working hard to make sure our site has useful content that is laid out in an easy-to-navigate way, so that you can find what you are looking for. We have taken into consideration people with speech readers.

    Increasing the text size

    If you find the text on the site appears too small for you to read, you can customise your browser to make the text larger. Choose View, then Text Size and select Medium, Larger or Largest (in Internet Explorer), or in Firefox choose View, Text Size, then Increase or Decrease.

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