This website was last tested on 7th December 2023. The test was carried out by The Health Informatics Service Web Department. We use the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines V2.1 level A and level AA to test how accessible chftcharity.co.uk is.

We used this approach to deciding on a sample of pages to test:

  • Looked at all mediums used on the site for example text, images, maps, videos, forms etc
  • Added at least one page per item to our sample list
  • Always include the homepage
  • We used Lighthouse to audit each page in the sample for accessibility issues.
  • We used Wave to test for accessibility issues on pages that do not need users to sign in.
  • We used Axe DevTools to test for accessibility issues on pages that do not need users to sign in.
