Accessibility statement

As inclusion is Hassell Inclusion’s purpose, we are committed to making our own website usable by all people, whatever their abilities or disabilities.

Find the right assistive technology to customise this site to your needs

While our site has been created to be usable ‘as is’, many people are likely to get the most accessible experience of using the site by customising their computer, tablet or smartphone to suit their individual needs – for example: to get the site spoken to them, to change its colour scheme, or increase the size of its fonts.

If that sounds like it would be useful to you, we recommend you visit WAI’s Better Web Browsing: Tips for Customizing your Computer (external site) to find details of how these customisations – either using the accessibility features of your computer/tablet/smartphone or through installing assistive technologies – might suit you.

We are also planning to incorporate some accessibility customisations within this site in the future, to make it easier for people to use who cannot customise their computer, tablet or smartphone for some reason. For an example of our aim, please see the restylethis customisation tool (external site).

If you have any difficulties customising the site to your needs, please contact us.


Limitations of this site's accessibility

We’ve designed, coded and tested this site to be accessible, including providing transcripts of all podcasts and videos. We are also testing it with people with disabilities. However, you may find some accessibility limitations at present which we are working to fix:

  • we’re looking to give some links within the YouTube media player more context
  • while we always aim to communicate as clearly as possible, reading some of our blogs may require a reasonable level of technical understanding due to the technical nature of what they are about
  • where abbreviations are used, these will be amplified on first use
  • please note: if you wish to get textual information from the carousels on the site, please use the transcript underneath them

Please note – the accessibility issue we had briefly with our navigation in early 2024 has now been fixed.
