This accessibility statement applies to the Crowland Parish Council website at www.crowland.parish.lincolnshire.gov.uk

This website is run by Crowland Parish Council. 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 400% 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.

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

  • some forms are not hosted on an accessible platform
  • some document attachments are not clearly written
  • some graphics and document attachments have poor colour contrast
  • some images do not have good alternative text
  • some buttons are not correctly identified
  • many documents are in PDF, Excel or Word format and are not accessible
