Accessibility

In keeping with our customer-first policy, and our obligations under the DDA (Disability Discrimination Act), we will ensure that our website is accessible to people who have visual, hearing, motor or cognitive impairments.

Making our website accessible is a core aim of Art for Youth North and we will try and ensure that it is usable with a broad range of operating systems, browsers, and specialist assistive technologies.

As a standard, we employ all the following methods to ensure our site is accessible to as many people as possible:

  • Our stylesheets allow for text resizing using the View – Text Size option in the browser toolbar.
  • We are committed to Plain English in all our written content.
  • Our site has been designed without the use of tables, except where we need to represent normally tabulated content such as timetables .
  • The website can be navigated without the use of a mouse.
  • A non-serif font is used for easier readability.
  • We do not use all-capitals for emphasis.
  • We use a hierarchy of heading markups i.e an <h1> tag for main headings, <h2> for secondary headings etc which makes it easier for screen readers to work out the stucture of a page.
  • Our site can be viewed in a logical order when all styling is turned off.

If there is an instance when our site does not meet the need of a specific disabled user group we will make changes to our currrent content, wherever appropriate, so that we can become more inclusive to a wider audience. Please contact us if this is the case torty.doug@btinternet.com.

UK Youth North

 

Founded in 1911, UK Youth improves social mobility by providing high quality services for young people aged 9 to 25 that are delivered through a network of locally accessible youth organisations across the UK.

Our vision is for all young people to be empowered to build bright futures, whatever their background or circumstances.

Our reach- we work primarily with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, from a wide range of religious and cultural environments, family settings, academic ability levels and geographic locations across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

UK Youth simply couldn’t continue its vital work without the funds raised at Art for Youth North.
