  • navigate most of the website using only a keyboard
  • listen to our website using a screen reader.

All non-text content has a text alternative.

AbilityNet has advice on how to make these changes to your device.

Language

We use plain English to make the text easy to read.

If you would like to read the website in another language use Google Translate.

Alternative formats

If you need information from this website in a different format, such as accessible PDF, large print, easy read, audio recording or braille, please contact us.

Non-accessible content

Whilst the ESSCP is committed to adhere to the accessibility standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.  Some of the content in our documents may not be accessible, but we have plans in place to review and update these as soon as possible.

There are some exemptions to the accessibility regulations, including:

  • Non-HTML documents (PDFs, Microsoft Officer files) that are not essential to the services the ESSCP provides.
  • Non-HMTL documents (PDFs, Microsoft Office files) that were published before 23/09/2018.
  • Pre-recorded audio and video published before 23/09/2020.
  • Online maps and mapping services.
  • Third party content that is not under the direct control of the ESSCP or main website provider.

Contact Us and Complaints Procedure
