This accessibility statement applies to FutureGoals, which is run by West Yorkshire Combined Authority. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. That means that you should be able to;

  • Zoom in up to 200% without 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.
  • We have provided ‘skip to content’ markers to enable users to bypass repeated content on pages.
  • We do not have any inaccessible PDFs or Word documents which are essential to providing our services.

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand, although some pages might include industry-specific words, acronyms or phrases which some users may not be familiar with. We have made efforts to provide explanations of terms and concepts where practical.

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