Technical information about this website’s accessibility

The Brook House Inquiry is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliance issues listed below.

Non accessible content

Pages have content in different languages where the language is not identified. This fails WCAG 2.1A 3.1.1 success criterion (Language of Page).

Focused links and buttons sometimes do not have enough contrast. This fails WCAG 1.4.11 AA (Non-text Contrast).

Disproportionate burden

Not applicable

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

PDFs and other documents are not accessible in a number of ways including missing text alternatives and missing document structure. View the accessible document policy of the organisation that published the document to report any problems or request documents in an alternative format.

Error messages on some forms using WordPress plug-ins are unclear or lack clear association with particular form controls. This fails WCAG 2.1A 3.3.1 success criterion (Error Identification).
