Accessibility Statement

This accessibility statement applies to https://drs.wlma.org.uk/

This website is run by the Water Management Alliance. 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

                     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.

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

The Water Management Alliance 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.


Navigation and accessing information / Interactive tools and transactions

We’ve assessed the cost of fixing any issues with navigation and accessing information, and with interactive tools and transactions. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. 


PDFs and other documents

The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.


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.
