What we do about known issues

We are a small not for profit organisation were most work is done by volunteers.

We will work to achieve and maintain WCAG 2.1 AA standards, but it is not always possible for all our content to be accessible due to both technical constraints, and time constrains.

Where content is not accessible, we will aim to state a reason, warn users and offer alternatives.

We are a charity that does not receive primary funding from the UK government, and does not provide a service that is essential to the public. As a result, we are not bound by the formal obligations that apply to the public sector, but we will do our best.
